Chelsea look close to sealing a deal for Croatian striker Andrej Kramaric - but the young forward is being urged to snub the Blues.
It seems as though Jose Mourinho is closing in on his first deal of January by securing the 23-year-old from Rijeka having reportedly agreed a four-year contract to move to Stamford Bridge.
He was previously linked with Leicester and the Daily Mail say they have had a bid of £7.5 million turned down already - and now Rijeka agent Predrag Racki says a move to the Foxes would better suit the 23-year-old as he’d get more playing time.
"Kramaric and his father had their brains washed regarding Leicester's position in the league table -- like they'll get relegated, go bust or disappear," he told Sportske Novosti.
"And what if Leicester stay up? They have another 19 games left -- nothing's decided yet. And what if the owner refreshes the team with new signings worth 40 million?"

"If he chooses Chelsea, Kramaric won't ever set foot on the Stamford Bridge pitch," he said. "He'll get lost in Holland, just like [Matej] Delac, [Mario] Pasalic or [Stipe] Perica. All that 'glitter' lasts two or three days.
"It's true that Leicester doesn't sound that attractive, but the 19 games for such a player is a real opportunity to showcase his talent. Prove yourself -- you either got it or you don't."
Fernando Torres has spoken of his delight at sealing a move back to Atletico Madrid. The forward has returned to his former club on loan and says it is a dream come true to be back at the Vicente Calderon.
Torres delighted with move
He had earlier joined AC Milan from Chelsea permanently earlier on in the week, but only to allow him to join the Spanish outfit on loan. Speaking of his time with the Blues, Torres said: "It gave me all the trophies I have with clubs and I was lucky enough to also win trophies with Spain. Now I hope to win them with Atletico."
Mourinho vindicated with ref apology
It seems as though Jose Mourinho has been vindicated for claiming there is a campaign against his players after the referee that wrongly booked Cesc Fabregas for diving against Southampton apologised to the Special One.
The Daily Mail say that the referee approached Mourinho after the match and offered an apology over the decision.
