Skysports.com understands Leicester are lining up a move for Preston forward Patrick Agyemang.
Foxes boss Ian Holloway is scouring the transfer market for reinforcements as he looks to guide his side away from trouble at the wrong end of the table.
Holloway has made a new striker one of his priorities and he has been alerted to Agyemang's possible availability.
The 27-year-old has been one of Preston's best performers this season in a disappointing campaign which sees them rooted to the bottom of the Championship table.
Agyemang's current contract at Deepdale expires at the end of the season and Preston could decide to cash-in on him in January rather than risk losing him for nothing next summer.
A number of other Championship sides are believed to be monitoring Agyemang's situation at Preston and Holloway could face a fight for his signature next month.
