Report: Leicester City consider Newcastle striker Seydou Doumbia, as well as Chelsea flop Falcao

Pre Kick Off

Leicester City have been linked to under performing Newcastle United and Chelsea strikers.

Leicester City being crowned champions opens up a whole new avenue of opportunities.

As entrants in next year's Champions League, they have more money than ever before, but need to spend it wisely.

A report in Italian website Tuttomercatoweb claims they are considering three strikers, not all of which may be sensible investments.

Named are Newcastle United loanee Seydou Doumbia, Chelsea loanee Radamel Falcao, and Porto striker Vincent Aboubakar.

Doumbia is on loan from Roma, and has struggled to convince Rafa Benitez he is worthy of starting in their crucial relegation battle, struggling for fitness.

He has made only three substitute appearances, but does have pedigree and Champions League experience, netting three goals in six games for CSKA Moscow on loan in the competition just this season.

Radamel Falcao is a high profile yet troubled striker, who looks like he will not recapture the form which made him one of the world's best, after a knee injury suffered at Monaco. Loan spells at Manchester United and Chelsea have flopped, and he would perhaps be better suited to China rather than Leicester.

Aboubakar is more like it, just 24-years-old, he has scored 13 goals in 27 league appearances for Porto this season, plus three in six Champions League games.

The Cameroon international would not come cheap, but Leicester are now richer than most in the division, and can afford to be choosy.
