Leicester City are weighing up a winter bid for Ludogorets Razgrad star Jonathan Cafu. The Brazilian winger has captured the eye of top European clubs through his impressive displays in the Champions League.

Cafu, 25, has been in splendid form for his side this term netting nine goals in all competitions.

Corriere dello Sport claims that the Foxes are lining up an offer for the attacker with manager Claudio Ranieri looking to bolster his side in the New Year.

The Foxes have drastically dropped in form following last season's heroics, and are now edging towards a relegation battle, unless they strengthen their squad.

Cafu has found the net in the Champions League outings against Basel and Arsenal this term, and his mixture of pace and creativity is something which has caught the attention of Foxes scouts.

The winger has earned 46 appearances for the Bulgarian giants since arriving from Sao Paulo in 2015.
