Real Betis Pursues Patson Daka Loan Deal from Leicester City
Spanish side Real Betis is making a late push to secure Zambian international Patson Daka on loan from Leicester City before the transfer window closes at midnight tonight. Real Betis, currently seventh in La Liga, aims to strengthen its attacking options following the departure of Borja Iglesias to Bayer Leverkusen until the summer. Manager Manuel Pellegrini is eager to find a replacement, and Daka has emerged as a potential target.
Reports suggest that Real Betis has contacted Leicester to discuss a loan deal, but time is running out as they only have until tonight to finalize any agreements. However, sources from England indicate that Leicester City might be reluctant to let Daka go. Manager Enzo Maresca is reportedly keen on keeping the Zambian striker due to injuries to Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho. With Vardy nearing retirement at the end of the season, Maresca reportedly prefers to offload Iheanacho, with Daka serving as a crucial backup.
Patson Daka has made seven goal contributions for Leicester City since making his full debut in the Championship in December, making him a valuable asset for the team. The final decision on the potential loan deal is yet to be determined.
