According to The Telegraph, Leicester are considering a move for West Brom striker Jay Rodriguez as the club look to improve their options in attack.
Rodriguez was in stunning form for the Baggies throughout 2018/19 as he found the back of the net 22 times en route to the play-offs.
However, he could now be on the move a year after his future was initially in doubt.
Leicester are the latest club to take an interest, per The Telegraph, who claim they are considering triggering his £5m release clause.
Barring the 2013/14 season when the 29-year-old found the net 15 times in the Premier League, he’s never been too consistent at the highest level.
But despite that, it would be a smart signing for Leicester, particularly given the price tag.
The pair of them have been extremely disappointing and, after wasting money on such expensive signings, signing Rodriguez for just £5m would display an intelligent new approach.
Given Vardy is the club’s star striker, they don’t need someone with a similarly prolific record to come in and challenge him.

Instead, they need a cheaper rotation option. By bringing in Rodriguez, Brendan Rodgers would strike gold in this regard and it would be a refreshing change of policy from what’s gone before in previous transfer windows.
Bringing in the West Brom man wouldn’t be particularly exciting, but it would show that Leicester are beginning to learn from their mistakes.
This can only be seen as a positive.
