Leicester leading Premier League chase for Inter Milan defender Jeison Murillo

first_img1 Stoke and Everton are also keen on Jeison Murillo Leicester City appear to be the frontrunners among a host of Premier League clubs who are in pursuit of Inter Milan defender Jeison Murillo.Foxes manager Claudio Ranieri closely followed Murillo’s progress over the course of last season and was impressed with the 23-year-old’s displays in Serie A.However, the Italian manager is concerned by Murillo’s disciplinary record after he was sent off four times last term, which may prove to be a stumbling block in any potential deal.That could pave the way for Stoke and Everton to make contact with Inter, who are likely to accept a fee in excess of £16m.Murillo would prefer a move to a club playing in the Champions League next season, but much could depend on who takes over at Everton this summer, with potential candidates Manuel Pellegrini and Unai Emery both understood to be avid admirers of the Colombian international.last_img read more
