Milan Mandaric has confirmed that Swindon striker Simon Cox is a transfer target for the summer.
Cox scored 32 goals for the Robins this season but his performances did not go unnoticed, with a number of clubs tracking his progress.
Swindon manager Danny Wilson admitted last week that the 22-year-old could leave the County Ground before the start of the 2009/10 campaign.
But he insisted he would look to get as much money as possible for Cox, who still has one year remaining on his current contract.
Leicester have reportedly already had one bid rejected, with another from Celtic also believed to have been knocked back.
However, Mandaric is still interested and hopes the highly-rated forward will be plying his trade for the Foxes next term.
"He is a quality player and Nigel (Pearson) and his staff think highly of him," Mandaric said.
"We are interested but we are facing competition. He is on a shortlist.
"We are at a time when we are approaching that situation and I think we should know more in a few days."
