Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck reportedly available for £15m, would be ideal for Leicester

Leicester City should consider a move for the Arsenal hitman.

Leicester boss Claude Puel will be determined to bolster his attacking ranks at the King Power Stadium this summer, with more competition required for the likes of Jamie Vardy and Shinji Okazaki.

The Foxes hitmen are 31 and 32 respectively, so an injection of pace and quality will be much needed for Puel's side, if they are to improve upon their ninth placed finish last season.

With this in mind, Leicester should consider a move for Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck, with the England international facing an uncertain future at the Emirates, according to a report from Goal, who claim that the Gunners value the striker at around £15 million.

The 27-year-old has struggled with injuries over the past few years, but he now seems to be back to somewhere near his best, from a fitness perspective at least.

Welbeck possesses pace in abundance, and is always willing to make unselfish runs into the channels, in an effort to create more space for his teammates.

His arrival at Leicester would help lift the burden from Jamie Vardy's shoulders, and for just £15 million, he could be an absolute steal for the Foxes, in what is currently such a ludicrously inflated transfer market.

Team Talk claims that the Arsenal forward will command a salary of somewhere in the region of £100k-a-week, so that might be a potential stumbling block for Leicester.

If Puel truly wants to guide his side back into contention for the European places, though, bringing in someone with Welbeck's quality would be a great place to start.
