Leicester Looking To Break Transfer Record This Summer For Jamie Vardy Clone

Leicester Looking To Break Transfer Record This Summer For Jamie Vardy Clone
By PJ Browne

Resting on their laurels is something Leicester are not going to do this summer.

The Premier League was won with a relatively small squad, they were also extremely lucky in terms of injuries. With the extra obligation of Champions League football looming next season, Claudio Ranieri is looking for reinforce his group of players.

According to the Guardian, recruitment will begin with the acquisition Deportivo La Coruna striker Lucas Perez. The 27-year-old Spaniard has 17 goals in La Liga this season with one game remaining. Perez has scored a league goal every 179 minutes in 2015/16, that's an impressive strike rate for a forward with a mid-table club.

Perez is seen as a Jamie Vardy clone - if it's not broken, why fix it?

Before joining his hometown club last season, Perez journeyed around Europe spending four years in Ukraine and two in Greece with PAOK.

Leicester will likely have to break their transfer record - the circa £9 million which was paid for Andrej Kramarić in January of last year - to sign the player.
