Leicester City complete signature of Andrej Kramaric

Leicester City players celebrate

Premier League strugglers Leicester City have signed Andrej Kramaric for a fee believed to be around £9.7 million.

Croatian side NK Rijeka have confirmed the sale of star striker Andrej Kramaric to Premier League side Leicester City.

Kramaric has fired his way on to the radars of many top teams across Europe with his form in Croatia and had been linked with Chelsea and Tottenham.

It is being suggested that the likelihood of first-team football at Leicester has proven important in luring Kramaric away from more illustrious sides.

Rijeka took to Twitter to confirm that the deal had been completed and wish the striker all the best for the future.


Kramaric must still secure his work permit, but it seems that both clubs expect that to be a formality and the transfer is set to take place.

It remains to be seen whether this is a pivotal moment in Leicester's bid to avoid the drop. The Foxes are currently rock bottom of the Premier League three points adrift.
