Leicester City should seriously consider a move for the West Bromwich Albion hitman.

Claude Puel will be desperate to bolster his forward options at Leicester this summer, in an effort to guide his side back into contention for the European places next season, and with West Brom willing to sell Salomon Rondon, the Foxes should not hesitate to bring him to the east Midlands.

The Venezuela international joined the Baggies from Zenit Saint Petersburg in the summer of 2015, for a fee believed to be worth in the region of £12 million, and he has gone on to score 28 goals for his club.

Rondon's game is based around so much more than just goals, however, and his hard-working approach to the game would see him slot seamlessly into Leicester's setup.

The Foxes already have the likes of Jamie Vardy and Shinji Okazaki, but they are in need of more competition in the striking department.

The West Brom ace would bring even more energy to Leicester's attacking play, and his willingness to make unselfish runs into the channels would surely prove to be a fantastic asset to Puel's side.

The 28-year-old striker would form a deadly partnership with Vardy, and the duo could spearhead Leicester's return back to the top seven in the Premier League table.

According to the Telegraph, Rondon can leave West Brom for £16.5 million this summer, and that would represent fantastic business for Leicester.
