Leicester City have reportedly made an approach to sign Premier League ace Andreas Pereira on loan, according to GloboEsporte.

The surprise title contenders, who are joint top of the table alongside Arsenal on 44 points, are interested in signing the Manchester United midfielder on loan for the remainder of the 2015-16 campaign.

The 20-year-old, who is a Brazil Under-20 international, has scored three goals in seven appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils this season.

However Pereira claims he wants more first-team action this term to boost his chances of playing for Brazil at the 2016 Rio Olympics this summer.

Currently behind fellow midfielders Memphis Depay, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard at Old Trafford, it is understood that Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri has enquired about his availability this month in regards to a temporary deal.

La Liga side Malaga and Eredivisie outfit PSV Eindhoven are also thought to be interested.
