Leicester City have reportedly made a £7.9m bid for highly coveted striker Andrej Kramaric, who plays for HNK Rijeka in Croatia.
According to the Daily Mail, the Foxes are one of the first clubs to make a concrete offer to land the services of the Croatian international, who has also interested various clubs across Europe.
It is believed that Premier League clubs Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are also interested in landing the striker, who has been in prolific form for his club this season.
Apart from the English clubs, Serie A giants Juventus and AC Milan have also made their interest known, and Atlanta, who have also approached the club about signing their striker, revealed that he had already signed a pre-contract agreement to sign for the Stamford Bridge outfit in January.
However, the club have dismissed such suggestions and believe that the player has six more months in his current contract and are determined to cash in on the player rather than lose him on a free during the summer.
Kramaric has had an impressive goal scoring record throughout his career and this season he has already scored 21 goals in 16 appearances for his club and Rejika value the striker at around £8m.
The report claims that Juventus have also made a £4.5m offer with bonuses for the 23-year-old striker, but are yet to agree a deal with the player's father.
Meanwhile, Leicester midfielder Marc Albrighton is hoping that the Foxes can pull off a win when they travel to Villa Park on Sunday.
"It's going to be a good contest. Both teams are down there struggling so it's a game that we're going with confidence into and we're looking to win the game. If there's any game where we can stop our rot, it's this one. We're quite capable of going there and upsetting them," Albrighton told Leicester's official site.
