Sunderland to make £11M offer for striker from Premier League counterpart as Moyes searches for attacking reinforcements

Sunderland manager David Moyes is set to table an £11 million bid for Leicester City striker Leonardo Ulloa, according to The Sun.

Ulloa arrived in England in the winter of 2013, signing for Brighton & Hove Albion. He hit the ground running in the Championship, bagging nine goals in his opening 17 appearances. He followed that up with 14 goals in the 2013/14 campaign, and subsequently earned himself a move to Leicester City.

The Argentine bagged 11 goals in his debut season for the Foxes. During their against-the-odds title winning campaign, he scored several crucial goals. However, this time around he has found his route into Claudio Ranieri’s starting eleven firmly blocked, and could be about to leave in search of first-team football.

As per The Sun, Moyes is looking to add some attacking reinforcements to his squad before the deadline, and Ulloa is high on the shortlist. The tabloid believe that he will make an £11 million move as he looks to secure the striker’s services. It remains to be seen whether the deal will get over the line before the window slams shut in a few days time.
