Transfer news: Leeds United and Leicester among sides targeting Braga defender Bruno Viana

Leeds United and Leicester City are among the English sides interested in signing Braga defender Bruno Viana, talkSPORT has learned.

The Brazilian centre-back, 24, is enjoying a fine season with the Portuguese side who continue to push the traditional top three.

Braga ace Bruno Viana challenges Porto star Moussa Marega for a header.

Viana has played a huge role in their defence, which has only conceded 28 goals in 28 league games, keeping them fourth, within three points of Sporting Lisbon.

It’s understood Leeds are considering a move for the player, who could cost between £8million and £10million.

Meanwhile, Leicester City have sent scouts to keep an eye on his performances as they mull over their summer option, which remain up in the air with head of recruitment Eduardo Macia leaving the club.

Wolves and Watford also retain an interest in Viana, while it’s previously been reported he’s on a shortlist to replace Wallace at Lazio, should his compatriot leave the Italian side.
