Leicester’s record man looking to make January exit

Andrej Kramaric is eager to leave high-flying Leicester in January, according to his agent.

The Croatian forward became the Foxes’ record signing just under 12 months ago when the club paid Rijeka £9m for his services.

Much was expected of the now 24-year-old upon his arrival given his scoring record in his homeland and interest from Chelsea, but he largely failed to make an impact at the King Power Stadium under Nigel Pearson and has played only 12 minutes of league football since the arrival of new boss Claudio Ranieri.

And now his agent, Vincenzo Cavaliere, has revealed that his client will consider a move away from Leicester in January in a bid to get his career back on track:

“If he has to change, rather than remain at Leicester, it is obvious that we should choose an ambitious club, but where he gets on the pitch on a regular basis,” he told TuttoMercatoWeb.

“At Juventus we do not believe there’s interest, as even [Simone] Zaza is not playing, while at Milan there are Luiz Adriano and [Carlos] Bacca.

“But there are many clubs that are struggling to score goals, such as Valencia.

Kramaric appears to have little chance of becoming a regular under Ranieri at Leicester, with Jamie Vardy having already hit 13 league goals, while Shinji Okazaki and Leonardo Ulloa are seen as the Englishman’s back-up option.
