Leganés are on the lookout for a wide man and if it’s a left-sided one so much the better. Asier Garitano has been combing the market for reinforcements as his side face another tough season in Primera after finishing 17th in their debut campaign in the top flight and is close to adding central defender Ezequiel Muñoz from Genoa and also has his sights on Sporting Lisbon’s Bruno César, although Lega will face competition from Krasnodar and Fiorentina for the Brazilian.
Lega keen on loan deal for Bruno César
Leganés missed out on Sevilla B’s Ivi, who has moved to newly promoted Levante instead and reports in Italy on Monday revealed the club’s interest in César. AS has been able to confirm through sources at Leganés that the 28-year-old is also open to a move to Madrid and that inquiries have been made, although the asking price of €3-4 million is a little high for a club resigned to seeking out loan deals above all.
However, the reports also mention that Sporting have not ruled out a loan deal after the club have played their Champions League qualifying tie against Steaua on August 15 and 22.
Peña and García on Garitano's list
Leganés have also been trying to arrange returns for former players Rubén Peña and Samu García, who spent part of last season on loan at Butarque, but in both cases have been unable to teach an agreement with the players’ clubs – Eibar and Rubin Kazan respectively.
