Foxes throw their hat into the ring for striker Andrej Kramaric.

Leicester City have launched an audacious transfer swoop as they look to bring in the players capable of lifting them off the bottom of the Premier League table in January, report the Mail, with the Foxes reportedly having lodged a £7.9 million bid with Croatian outfit Rijeka for the signing of prolific striker Andrej Kramaric.

The former Dinamo Zagreb striker is having a stunning season with Rijeka on the shore of the Mediterranean, with his goalscoring feats in both Croatian domestic football and the Europa League having attracted the attention of Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, both of whom are believed to be interested in securing the January signing of Kramaric.

It is under fire Foxes manager Nigel Pearson and Leicester City who have appeared to move first to try and secure the 23 year-old from underneath their rivals’ noses, however, with the club’s bid coming close to match the £8m that Rijeka are believed to be demanding for Kramaric.

Some good news would certainly go down well at the King Power Stadium, with manager Nigel Pearson having been embroiled in a row over an incident at Tuesday night’s defeat to Liverpool, where he appeared to swear at a support behind the dugouts.
