Brendan Rodgers has taken The Foxes to another level and, with eight games of the Premier League season to go, they are in pole position to qualify for next season's Champions League.
Despite their success, Rodgers will be looking to improve the squad even further in the summer transfer window.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Leicester are interested in signing an established Premier League striker.
What has Romano said?
Taking to his Twitter page on Saturday afternoon, Romano revealed that Leicester are interested in a move for Tammy Abraham.
'Leicester are among the clubs interested in signing Tammy Abraham. He’s one of the targets for #LCFC if Chelsea will open to sell him in the summer,' he wrote.
How has Abraham performed this season?
Abraham, who has six caps for England, was in and around the first team under Frank Lampard but he has fallen out of favour with Thomas Tuchel.
He has only played three times since February and was left out of the squad completely for Chelsea's FA Cup game against Man City.
He has scored 12 times in 30 games this season.
What does Abraham feel about his current situation?
Abraham has not spoken publicly about his situation but, according to The Telegraph, he and some of his teammates have been left 'confused' about his lack of game time.
How much will he cost?
It is unknown yet whether he is available and Romano has not said how much he will cost.
According to Transfermarkt, he is worth £36m.
Given he's English, just 23 years old and has a great goal scoring record, you would imagine he would cost around that.
Should Leicester sign Abraham?
Leicester have two good strikers in Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho.
But Vardy is nearing the end of his career - he's 34 years old - and Leicester don't have many options beyond their current duo.
Leicester need a striker and Abraham will be an ideal signing. It all comes down to how much he will cost and whether Chelsea will allow him to leave, though.News Now - Sport News
Whether it be Tottenham’s Harry Kane, Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Hazard, Juventus’ Paulo Dybala or plenty more, some of the world’s top players are being linked with moves at the end of the season.
With the international break in full swing, plenty of clubs, players and agents across Europe are seemingly using the lack of club action to prepare for the summer transfer window.
With reports and rumours aplenty circling each and every day, GIVEMESPORT caught up with transfer expert Fabrizio Romano to discuss some of the players who could find themselves on the move this summer, as well as the futures of some of the most high-profile managers on the continent. Check out what Fabrizio had to say in our latest video:
Fabrizio Romano on Harry Kane’s future...
'I think it’s difficult to see Harry Kane out of Tottenham, really.
“What I’m told is that Tottenham are planning with Harry Kane as part of the team and they want to discuss his contract in the coming months.”
Fabrizio Romano on Erling Haaland’s future...
“Yes, there is a chance (he could leave this summer) just because it depends on the Champions League. First of all, I want to say that Erling is happy with Borussia Dortmund, he is tied in with Borussia Dortmund so he’s not saying 'Okay, I want to leave the club, I’m desperate to leave the club' but if there if there is a good opportunity, he’s leaving.
'(In terms if who wants him), I think Liverpool is complicated in this moment because they are happy when with the team they have so they’re not planning to do something like a central striker for this money but obviously, I’m not the Sporting Director of Liverpool but let’s see what happens!
'But in this moment I see Liverpool complicated and and let’s see what happens with Manchester United. For sure Solskjaer wants him but it’s not easy to sign him this summer because his release clause is for next summer.
'So you have to deal with Borussia Dortmund, negotiate with Borussia Dortmund, it won’t be easy.
'Manchester City are looking for a striker 100% Chelsea are looking for a striker too, so keep an eye on Chelsea, keep an eye on Manchester City, always on Manchester United and I will say Real Madrid in Spain more than Barcelona because for sure Barcelona president Laporta is in love with Haaland but spending this money this summer will be difficult for Barca.”
Fabrizio Romano on Jose Mourinho’s future...

“There is no break clause in the contract of Jose Mourinho and so if they want to sack Mourinho one day, they have to pay Mourinho.
'At the moment this is the situation but to be honest with you, I was checking the day after the terrible match in the Europa League, what was the view around the club and what’s going on with Jose and everything and they always always said 'we are still planning with him, we’re still with Jose, obviously we expect something different because it was terrible, what happened in Europa League was a total disaster' but there are still plenty (of people at the club) with him and backing him.”
