Leicester City currently have Jamie Vardy, Kelechi Iheanacho, Patson Daka and Thomas Cannon as the four strikers in their squad.

Vary and Iheanacho have deals expiring in June, and the Foxes have to sign a striker in the summer window, more so after they secured promotion to the Premier League.

Leggo, relayed by, explain that Leicester have identified AS Roma’s Tammy Abraham as a target.

The 26-year-old was forced to miss most of the season due to a serious knee injury and only returned to action in April, finishing the season with a goal and an assist from 12 games.

It’s explained that Leicester are looking to bring in a quality No. 9 and have ‘identified the former Chelsea man as the player to bet on’ in the next window.

Roma director Florent Ghisolfi wants to offload the Englishman and therefore, is ‘willing to start negotiations’ with the Foxes. He wants €28m for Abraham, and there’s no mention if Leicester are ready to offer this fee.

Leicester are expected to face competition from AFC Bournemouth to sign Abraham. Last week, the Cherries appointed former Roma general manager Tiago Pinto as president of football operations, and he’s determined to sign the Englishman for his new club.
