Leicester City considering summer move for Watford striker

Leicester City are looking at Watford star Troy Deeney as a summer transfer target, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

The Foxes lifted the Premier League trophy last weekend in what is considered as one of the greatest sporting achievements in history, but manager Claudio Ranieri is already looking forward to next season, which will include Champions League football.

This means that the Italian is set to bring in some new faces during the summer, with a striker high on his wishlist to alleviate the burden on star man Jamie Vardy.

The likes of Ahmed Musa and Pescara ace Gianluca Lapadula are being linked with moves, but Watford’s Deeney is now also being considered.

Deeney helped the Hornets to promotion last season with 21 Championship goals, and continued his fine form this term with 14 in all competitions.

The Foxes will play their final game of the season against last year’s champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this weekend.
