The Premier League's top scorer Jamie Vardy is subject to major interest from Liverpool and Tottenham, according to ESPN sources.
The Leicester City frontman continued his unbelievable start to the season by scoring the only goal in the Foxes' victory over Crystal Palace, extending his personal run of striking in seven consecutive league games and ten in total for the campaign.
With Danny Ings ruled out indefinitely, Daniel Sturridge's continued battle with injuries and doubts whether Christian Benteke will fit in Jurgen Klopp's style, Vardy could well be the answer to Liverpool's troubles.

Meanwhile, Spurs have made an assured start to the season, but Mauricio Pochettino's team have lacked firepower and creativity going forward. Harry Kane has struggled to replicate last year's prolific campaign, scoring just one league goal from his nine appearances so far and Tottenham look threadbare of other options following the failed pursuit of Saido Berahino in the summer.
Therefore, it is no wonder to see both teams heavily linked with the England forward, who continues to impress as the focal point to this season's surprise package Leicester.
Liverpool and Tottenham will both be aiming to qualify for the Champions League and a big money move to one of them really will complete the rags-to-riches story for Vardy.
The 28-year-old joined his current club from non-league Fleetwood for £1 million in 2012 and until this year has never been considered a regular scorer. In his first three years for the Foxes, Vardy found the back of the net just 26 times, five of those in his debut season at the top of English football.
However, he signed a new three-year-deal in the summer, giving Leicester the option to wait for a big offer before letting him leave.
