Excelsior striker Lars Veldwijk is wanted by Leicester City.

The Daily Mail says the 6ft 5ins striker plays for Excelsior in Holland's second division but has grabbed the attention of scouts by scoring 30 goals in 38 games this season.

The 22-year-old was close to joining Roda in January but ultimately Excelsior rejected the bids.

Leicester are keen to bring in a target man after having a bid rejected for Brighton's Leonardo Ulloa, however, they will face competition for Veldwijk from Midlands neighbours Nottingham Forest.
