Published Add your comment

Leicester City are reportedly ready to make a formal approach for Everton striker Victor Anichebe.

According to the Daily Mail, the nouveau-riche npower Championship outfit will bid £3 million for the 23-year-old as Sven Goran-Eriksson continues to build a squad capable of achieving promotion.

The former England boss has already has already brought 11 new faces to the King Power Stadium, and his transfer ambition appears to show no sign of abating.


It would, however, appear unlikely that David Moyes would be open to selling Anichebe, with an Everton front line already short on options.

Along with Anichebe, the Everton boss has only Louis Saha, Jermaine Beckford and Yakubu in terms of senior strikers, while youngster Magaye Gueye is likely to play a greater role this season.

However, Yakubu has been been linked with a move away from Goodison Park and, with Saha's injury-history, Moyes could find himself short sooner rather than later.
