Andrej Kramaric's agent talks up potential January exit from Leicester City

The Croatian is ready to head away on loan.

January is approaching and the transfer rumours are starting to filter through ahead of the transfer window opening.

Last January Leicester City beat off a host of competition to the signature of Croatian international Andrej Kramaric.

He joined in a club record deal, reported by the BBC to be in the region of £9 million, and played his part in Leicester's miraculous survival in the Premier League last season.

But this term he has slipped down the pecking order at the King Power Stadium.

Jamie Vardy is on fire and Shinji Okazaki has been a top recruit. Leonardo Ulloa is also ahead of him in the mind of Claudio Ranieri.

He has therefore been linked with a move away from the club. With that in mind his agent Vincenzo Cavaliere has told Tuttomercatoweb that the Croatian has offers from Germany, England and Spain as well as from Italian side Torino:

"We are talking with several companies, we must resolve the issue with the Leicester, in particular financial incentives.

"The salary is high enough then, but we will evaluate the best option football. Proposals are also coming from Germany, England and Spain, but roll on Torino.

"The formula? Definitely a loan with the right of redemption, no one now takes a player like that outright. But the Foxes have paid 11 million (euros), it is clear they do not want to get lost too: the request could range from six to ten (million euros), but it is clear that they can not require the same amount a year ago."

Kramaric has played just five games for The Foxes this season. He has played just two times in the league this season and will undoubtedly want first-team football in the run up to the European Championships in France in the summer.

Leicester, who be second in the Premier League table going into the New Year, will want to recoup much of the fee they splashed out on the player.

But it looks like they will be Kramaric-less for the second half of the season.
