Emile Mpenza's agent has confirmed that Leicester have made a bid for the striker.
Leicester are hoping to strike a loan deal for Mpenza, who is currently out-of-favour at Manchester City.
The 29-year-old is currently considering his options, one of which is a bid from Leicester.
"I have already been called several times by the people of Leicester," Mpenza's agent Rachid Tajmot told Het Laatste.
"But we are looking at all the options."
Mpenza is out-of-contract in the summer and would automatically qualify for a new deal after 16 league games but he is currently short of that mark and is now unlikely to reach that figure.
Leicester will hope to seal a deal before Thursday when the transfer window for loans closes.
