Cambiasso and Alvarez for Leicester

Ex-Inter midfielder Esteban Cambiasso is close to Leicester City and Catania’s Pablo Alvarez could join him.

Cambiasso is a free agent, as his contract was allowed to expire by Inter this summer.

The 34-year-old had been linked with Sampdoria, but said he preferred to go abroad rather than face his beloved Nerazzurri as an opponent in Serie A.

The Foxes have been in talks for some time and it’s believed Cambiasso is ready to sign a two-year contract.

According to the Daily Mirror, Leicester are also eyeing up another Italy-based Argentine.

They claim Catania defender Alvarez is prepared to leave the recently relegated club.
