Report: Leicester place £15m price tag on Jamie Vardy amid Liverpool and Spurs interest

Leicester City

Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy has been linked with Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

According to a report in the Daily Star, Leicester City have placed a £15 million price tag on striker Jamie Vardy amid interest from Premier League duo Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

The former non-league striker has been in the form of his life this season, scoring 11 league goals in 11 matches including at least one in his last eight consecutive matches.

His blistering from has caught the attentions of not only England boss Roy Hodgson but Premier League rivals Liverpool and Spurs, with a report in ESPN accrediting the duo with an interest.

As the January transfer window looms, Leicester may have to brace themselves for strong interest in their star man and fresh reports state they will demand £15 million for his services.

“Leicester will demand £15m for man of the moment Jamie Vardy. Tottenham, Liverpool, West Brom and Borussia Dortmund have all shown an interest in the former Stocksbridge, Halifax and Fleetwood star,” the report in the Daily Star states.

Potential suitors

While Spurs have been linked with Jamie Vardy via a number of media outlets, a potential deal to take him to White Hart Lane seems rather farfetched for a number of key factors.

At 28, the striker isn’t getting any younger and Spurs rarely buy established top-flight players from rival clubs. Instead, it’s in their best interests to aim for players who maintain for the long-term.

Moreover, Heung-Min Son has bolstered their attacking options and while there is scope for a further addition, one can only assume they will go back in for West Brom star Saido Berahino.

Liverpool, on the other hand, could do with an in-from striker now to supplement the likes of Daniel Sturridge and expensive summer signing Christian Benteke.

Jurgen Klopp has been forced to play Divock Origi on more than one occasion since joining the Reds, yet the Belgium international youngster appears some way off the required standard for now.
