Leicester striker Ulloa keen on Swansea move

Leonardo Ulloa has reportedly told Claudio Ranieri that he wants to leave Leicester City.

The Argentine striker was mainly used off the bench as the Foxes took out the Premier League title last season and with the arrival of club-record signing Ahmed Musa, fears his game time will be decreased even further.

The Sun suggests that Ulloa, 30, has informed Ranieri that he would like to be sold to Swansea City who are showing significant interest.

It is understood that the Swans are willing to pay £10million for Ulloa who cost Leicester £2m less when he joined from Brighton & Hove Albion two years ago.

Swansea boss Francesco Guidolin is prepared to part with Andre Ayew and Bafetimbi Gomis this summer and has already offloaded Alberto Paloschi to Atalanta but is eager to bring in replacements as soon as possible.
