Andrej Kramaric has been told to reject a bid from Chelsea, in favour of a move to Leicester City.
The 23-year-old has been tipped to make a January move to the West London club, having impressed for his Croatian club side, HNK Rijeka.
Kramaric, who has netted 28 goals already this season, was seemingly Didier Drogba’s long-term replacement at Chelsea, with the Blues set to spend big on the young striker.
However, in recent days, Rijeka-based agent Predrag Racki, has urged the starlet to reject London’s lure, in favour a move to bottom of the table Leicester City.
Leicester Thai owners are set to spend big in the January window, in an attempt to salvage their top-flight status.
“Kramaric and his father had their brains washed regarding Leicester’s position in the league table – like they’ll get relegated, go bust or disappear,” he said.
“And what if Leicester stay up? They have another 19 games left – nothing’s decided yet. And what if the owner refreshes the team with new signings worth £40m?”
