Claudio Ranieri wants to sign a new striker before the transfer window closes and the Leicester boss is “very confident” of doing so.
Allowing Andrej Kramaric to go out on loan to German club Hoffenheim has left Ranieri with just three strikers and the Italian would like to lessen the burden on main man Jamie Vardy.
“We have our eyes open,” said Ranieri. “If there is a good opportunity for us, we are ready. Now I want another attacking player – a striker.
“I am very confident. My staff is fabulous, every day they are working, because when I ask about something they are ready.”
