Ulloa could ask Leicester City for transfer this month

Leonardo Ulloa could ask Leicester City for a transfer during the transfer window, as his frustration at a lack of first team opportunities grows.

The Argentine has been at the King Power Stadium since the summer of 2014, when the Foxes paid a then club record £8million to prise him from Brighton & Hove Albion. He has gone on to score 19 goals in 80 appearances for the club in all competitions, and featured 29 times in the memorable title-winning campaign last term.

This season, though, Ulloa has grown increasingly frustrated with his lack of first team chances, with his only Premier League start coming against Middlesbrough earlier this month. In all, he has only appeared seven times across the board for Claudio Ranieri’s side this season, and he is now said to be considering his future.

According to Sky Sports sources, the 30-year-old could even hand in a transfer request to accelerate a fresh start elsewhere. A number of Spanish clubs are said to be interested in the striker, who has 18 months left on his Leicester contract, whilst Swansea City were linked with a £9million move for him last summer.
