Lyon, Three Others Send Scout To Watch Leicester City Target Etebo Against Porto


Leicester City linked Nigerian forward Oghenekaro Etebo is also courting interest from teams in France with Lyon, Marseille, Montepellier and Lens eyeing a summer swoop for the CD Feirense forward.


Etebo was offered to Premier League champions Leicester City by a scout close to the national team of Nigeria, and the club have been monitoring his progress in view of a move in the summer.

However in addition to competition from Turkish side Fenerbahce, four clubs from France have also joined the hunt for the 21 year old who has two goals from 21 games in the Portuguese League this season.

The clubs were all present in Portugal to scout Etebo during CD Feirense league game against FC Porto. Scouts from Lyon and Lens were spotted again during his club’s game last weekend against Maritimo.

His Portuguese side CD Feirense have maintained that the forward will be allowed to leave the club, only if a bid that matches their valuation of the Nigeria senior international is made.
