Andrej Kramaric is reportedly on his way to Leicester City to finalise a deal worth £9.5 million despite interest from the Premier league leaders Chelsea.
The Croatian has joined Leicester even though they are at the bottom of the league table but has been assured that he will be sold in the summer, should Leicester become victims of relegation to the Championship.
The report claims: “Andrej Kramaric has travelled to London with his father and agent Joza Kramaric along with Rijeka’s Managing Director Ivan Mance, where he will have the last round of negotiations with Leicester City.”
Leicester are also prepared to offer the forward a £28,000 a-week wage as he has scored 28 goals in 30 appearances this season.
“If nothing changes until tonight or early tomorrow, Kramaric should sign a five-year contract with a transfer fee of €12m (£9.5m) to be paid to Rijeka.
“That offer was sent 15 days ago but was refused by Kramaric as he wanted to sign for a stronger side than Leicester.
“But after a couple of meetings with Rijeka’s chairman Damir Miskovic, Kramaric has changed his mind and agreed to Leicester City’s offer.
“Reports state his salary will be close to €1.5m (£1.15m) per season and also say Leicester City will be prepared to sell him in the summer window should they get relegated from the Premier League.”
