Reading boss Brendan Rodgers is set to move for a loan striker after seeing his side miss a host of chances against Leicester.
Rodgers saw his side carve open the Foxes on numerous occasions but Simon Church and Grzegorz Rasiak were unable to provide a finishing touch in a 1-0 defeat.
"You don't need to be a rocket scientist to see that we are lacking something at the top of the pitch," he said.
"We lost a lot of players in the summer and I have given everyone here a chance but we are where we are. The only thing missing is the end product.
"Loan signings remain an option and that is something I will have to look at."
