Leicester City are again set to take advantage of Hull City’s relegation to the Sky Bet Championship, by making a move for goalkeeper, Eldin Jakupovic, reports the Leicester Mercury.
The Premier League outfit are planning a £2m bid for the goalkeeper, who impressed for the Tigers in the top-flight last season, despite their relegation.
Ron-Robert Zieler’s move to Stuttgart has left the Foxes in need of a goalkeeper to compete with Kasper Schmeichel for the number one jersey in the Premier League next season.
Their attentions have turned to Jakupovic, 32, and Leicester will look to take advantage of the goalkeeper’s contract situation at the KCOM Stadium.
Jakupovic’s contract is set to expire in 12-months, which boosts Leicester’s chances of securing a deal at a reasonable price for the goalkeeper.
Alan McGregor’s injury last season handed Jakupovic a Premier League opportunity, and the 32-year-old put in some impressive displays for the Tigers during his 22 appearances.
Should Jakupovic make a move to the King Power Stadium, he will become the second Hull player to leave for Leicester this summer.
Harry Maguire opted to leave East Yorkshire for a return to the Premier League, signing a five-year deal with Leicester for a reported £17m.
