CSKA Moscow target Lille’s Xeka

Journalist Ignazio Genuardi reports this afternoon that CSKA Moscow are looking to sign Lille midfielder Xeka, having already brought in Yusuf Yazıcı from Les Dogues.

The 27-year-old, who has been at Lille since 2017 and took part in last season’s title-winning campaign, sees his contract expire at the end of the season.

The former Portuguese youth international is now a target of the Russian side, who have shown concrete interest in bringing him in.

The midfielder has 15 Ligue 1 appearances this season, while his campaign highlight so far will have been scoring the match winner to win Les Dogues the Trophée des Champions against Paris Saint-Germain.
