Last Updated 4:44 PM 12th January 2020 .
Quess East Bengal FC are in search of some reinforcements after a “not-so-good” start to their I-League campaign and they are rumored to be in talks with Bengaluru FC Academy product and their B team’s forward Leon Augustine.
Leon Augustine made a huge difference in the Durand Cup match earlier this season when Quess East Bengal FC faced Bengaluru FC B side at the Salt Lake Stadium. Leon’s performance caught the eyes of Alejandro Menendez and all the fans present on the ground.
Bengaluru FC B will be participating in the 2nd Division I-League this season and they have recently won the Bengaluru Football League, where Leon Augustine was one of the main players of Naushad Moosa’s team with 6 goals in the campaign including a hattrick against MEG.
Leon Augustine can play as a forward as well as attacking midfielder. He made his Bengaluru FC senior debut in the 2017-18 AFC Cup match against Abahani Dhaka, when he came off the bench in the second half in a 1-0 win.
Leon’s inclusion will certainly provide an option upfront for coach Alejandro Menendez if the signing does materialse.
