Leicester should hijack interest in Ajax striker Kasper Dolberg

Jamie Vardy remains the first-choice striker for Leicester City, but the 32-year-old needs competition at the King Power Stadium and the club need an eventual successor.

Kelechi Iheanacho is yet to really make his mark on the Foxes and struggles to fill Vardy’s void when he is missing, which is why manager Claude Puel should bring in a centre-forward in the summer.

There is a theme of brilliant young talent within the Leicester squad right now and they should continue that by considering a move for Ajax’s Kasper Dolberg.

According to Calciomercato, Premier League clubs West Ham and Southampton are both interested in the striker from the Dutch top-flight.

But Leicester should throw their name into the hat for the Denmark internatonal and try land him.

The 21-year-old is up to 10 goals across all competitions this campaign and is beginning to get back to his sharpest after injury problems.

He’s got a wealth of European experience and is still competing in this season’s Champions League, which highlights his pedigree and stature.

Dolberg is a huge threat inside the penalty area and has all scored all types of goals for Ajax in the Eredivisie, while he’s got a good turn of pace too and offers a presence with his height.

He could be an excellent second option to Vardy next year at the King Power Stadium and be the calibre of player needed to become the next number nine when the Englishman slows down.
