He could be offered a temporary move away from Craven Cottage before next week's deadline after Eriksson acknowledged his interest in the 30-year-old.
"He is one of several we have asked about," said Eriksson in the Leicester Mercury. "I can't deny he is one of them, but he is not the only one.
"We have had very little contact with Fulham, and myself almost nothing. It is ongoing work.
"I guess Lee Hoos, the chief executive, has been talking to at least three clubs during the last two days. There are contacts all the time.
"If it is someone like him or someone with the same abilities, who we feel can help the team to ride higher in the table, we will do it, whether it is a striker, defender or midfielder.
"You can't go out and spend millions on a player for the rest of the season but, if something is possible that we think will make the team better, we will do that."
