Cape Town - Leicester City have been rebuffed in their attempts to sign Internacional forward Eduardo Sasha, according to reports in Brazil.

Sasha, whose style of play is similar to that of Shinji Okazaki, has reportedly been targeted by Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri as a player that would add value to the squad and push existing members for a spot in the first team.

Added to his Brazilian flair, the 24-year-old's main strength is his stamina and ability to fit seamlessly on either wing. Sasha has scored 11 goals and recorded a further five assists in 49 games for the Colorado.

There is likely to be a bit of a transfer saga due to ownership issues over the Brazilian, as Inter only own 60 percent of his economic rights, with investor Delcir Sonda owning 10% and the rest being owned by the player himself.

The Leicester Mercury reported that his transfer value may rise up to £15m.
