Leicester boss Ranieri has eyes on a new striker

Claudio Ranieri admits he wants to bring a new striker to Leicester City this winter.

The Foxes still sit second on the Premier League table, equal on points with leaders Arsenal, but Ranieri is eager to strengthen his squad so as to give the likes of leading scorer Jamie Vardy some assistance.

Ranieri allowed Andrej Kramaric to join Hoffenheim on loan this week but now wants to bring in a new attacker to provide competition for Leonardo Ulloa and Shinji Okazaki.

"We have our eyes open," said Ranieri.

"If there is a good opportunity for us, we are ready. Now I want another attacking player - a striker.

"I am very confident. My staff is fabulous, every day they are working, because when I ask about something they are ready. I'd like to do my business as soon as possible."
