A striker could be one of their main targets, especially given that star man Jamie Vardy could be set for a £20million move to Arsenal.

Leicester have already been linked with Watford striker Troy Deeney, and another option for them could be Roma youngster Tony Sanabria.

He spent last season on loan at Sporting Gijon where he shone, scoring 11 goals in 29 appearances in La Liga.

That has caught the attention of Leicester City who, according to Sport, have made a significant offer for the 20-year-old striker.

According to the Spanish media outlet, he could be available in a deal worth €13million, around £10million.

They are not the only side interested in his services though, with La Liga champions, and his former club, Barcelona also eyeing a move.

Indeed, the report claims he would give preference to a return to the Nou Camp ahead of a move to the King Power Stadium so it will be interesting to see how this one plays out.
