Should Celtic consider a second move for Leicester striker Andrej Kramaric?

Celtic were linked with a move for Leicester's Andrej Kramaric last month.

Leicester City striker Andrej Kramaric has told Sata24 in his native Croatia that he is disgruntled with life at the King Power Stadium after a lack of first-team football.

"I don't know why I'm not playing," said Kramaric. "The fans love me, they support me and they are sorry I get so few chances. I deserve to play more, it affects my confidence. I don't know what's going to happen," he added.

The 24-year-old striker joined Leicester from Rijeka in January having smashed 55 goals in 65 games for the Croatian outfit, yet after three goals in 15 games for the Foxes last season, Kramaric has been on the fringes of the Leicester side under new manager Claudio Ranieri.

It's now clear just how unhappy Kramaric is with his current situation, and a loan move away in January could be a viable option, with Celtic potentially interested.

The Daily Mail reported on deadline day that Celtic were looking to snap up Kramaric, with manager Ronny Deila desperately looking for a new striker - something he missed out on.

With Carlton Cole's trial at Celtic yet to produce a permanent offer, Celtic may well wait until January to find their new striker - and Deila may well be monitoring Kramaric's comments.

Having recently signed his compatriot Jozo Simunovic, a player Kramaric came up through the ranks at Dinamo Zagreb alongside, the forward would have a familiar face at Celtic Park, whilst he also has the quality to make an impact in Scottish football.

With a decent turn of pace, impressive skill and finishing ability, Kramaric could be a short-term solution to Celtic's striking problems, and Leicester may be willing to sanction a six-month loan deal to keep their striker happy - so Deila should certainly be looking to make a second move for the player in January, finances permitting.
