Leicester City have agreed the signing of Andrej Kramaric for a club-record fee, believed to be close to 9.7 millions euros, and the Croatia striker’s transfer from HNK Rijeka is set to go through subject to a work permit being granted. The signing of Kramaric represents quite a coup for Leicester, given that Chelsea have also pursued the Croatian international.
The 23-year-old has scored 28 goals in 24 appearances for Rijeka and the national team this season and had looked to be on his way to Stamford Bridge in this window. However, it appears that Rijeka’s asking price and the fact that Leicester are able to guarantee Kramaric regular first-team football has swung the deal in the favour of the Midlands club.
From Italy, Juventus were monitoring him but it seems it was too late.
