According to the The Sun UK, Leicester City are interested in signing Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic, who has also been linked with Arsenal in the summer transfer window.
If the Serbian’s move to the King Power Stadium materializes, manager Brendan Rodgers has lined him up to partner Jamie Vardy in attack next season, and this could see the end of Super Eagles star Kelechi Iheanacho playing second fiddle to the former England international.
Jovic has had a poor debut season with Real Madrid, scoring two goals in 25 appearances in all competitions, and the Spanish giants are willing to listen to offers for the 22-year-old.
With the Foxes on the verge of returning to Europe, Brendan Rodgers is in the market for a striker to ease the goalscoring burden on Vardy.
The Leicester City number 9 has rarely partnered with Iheanacho in attack, with the two strikers named in the starting lineup together six times in all competitions so far this season, but it has worked quite well when it happens.
Despite his limited playing opportunities, the former Manchester City starlet has found the net ten times from his 1,180 minutes – across 23 matches, 14 of which he started.
