The Leicester City fans who are gathered at the bar in The Transfer Tavern this evening are getting rather excited about the news that this world renowned striker could be on his way to the club this summer.
Speculation is rife that Robin Van Persie could be on his way to the King Power Stadium this summer after the forward took to Twitter and followed a couple of Leicester stars.
On Monday the 32-year-old followed both Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy on Twitter, suggesting that he may be set for a move the the Premier League champions.
The Dutchman has made it clear that he is looking to leave Turkish side Fenerbahce this summer after becoming unsettled with life in Turkey.
Leicester would definitely fit the criteria for Van Persie and with the added bonus of the side playing Champions League football next season, it could be enough to persuade the former Arsenal and Manchester United striker to make the move.
