|Leicester City have entered talks with Sampdoria over teenage defender Pedro Pereira.|
According to Secolo, Leicester are expected to pay around £7.3m for the 17-year-old right-back.
The Portuguese starlet has attracted a number of clubs this season but it appears Ranieri's exciting project at Leicester has persuaded him to move to the Premier League leaders.
The deal could see Gokhan Inler go the other way after reports emerged earlier in the week that the midfielder was open to a move to Italy.
