After the Mirror revealed that the Foxes are hunting down Gianluca Lapadula, who has scored 24 times this season for Seria B side Pescara.
His hot form has also seen him be linked with Tottenham and Claudio Ranieri will hope his side’s fairy tale finish to this season, will attract the 26-year-old to the King Power Stadium.
With Champions League football, which you can bet on with Netbet, on Ranieri’s mind for next season he is looking to add another striker to his squad, to take the weight off of Jamie Vardy’s shoulders.
The Foxes have sent scouts over to Italy to watch him perform this season as well as having made contact with the club over a potential deal.
Pescara president Daniele Sebastiani said: “I received a phone call from Claudio Ranieri some time ago, before Leicester were crowned Premier League champions.
“It was a courtesy call where we talked about football and he confided to me that he is following our striker with interest. It was not anything official, but only interest.”
