According to a report from Spain, a £30million failed Leicester City signing is angling to leave for free next year. In January, Ayoze Perez can negotiate his exit from LCFC with other clubs.

My verdict on the Spaniard is obvious from the introduction: he was a bad acquisition. This sentiment especially applies as Leicester are generally known as one of the most clinical and shrewd operators in the business of football.

We are all aware of the momentous and iconic captures of Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez, N’Golo Kante, and the rest, which enabled the astonishing Premier League triumph of 2015/16, yet there have been duds in those six or seven years as well. There were worse incomings in that era, to be fair to Perez. Though when taking into account fee and productivity, he is arguably up there with Jannik Vestergaard.

If you consider other wingers – I know the former Newcastle United man considers himself a second striker and central player predominant, but, ya know – at the club who have performed, it is pretty clear Perez is out of his depth for the price tag. He has put in a handful of exceptional displays over the years, although those showings were never consistent.

However, the 29-year-old might perhaps be exiting Filbert Way by the end of the campaign. A story, carried here by Leicestershire Live, claims that Perez wishes to ‘terminate his contract’ with the King Power club. In addition to that, he is said to want to leave England. Because his deal is expiring, the Fox can negotiate with external outfits in January.
