Bordeaux target Flamengo defender Léo Pereira

Foot Mercato report this morning that Bordeaux are set to continue their summer business, with the club looking to sign Brazilian centre-back Léo Pereira from Flamengo. 

The defender is tied down to the Rio de Janeiro-based side until 2024, having joined the club last year after signing from Athletico Paranaense, and notably won a Série A title in 2020.

The 25-year-old would become the latest of Les Girondins’ summer signings, with left-backs Gideon Mensah and Ricardo Mangas – from Salzburg and Boavista respectively – joining, as well as PSG defender Timothée Pembélé arriving on an initial loan deal.
