Jamie Vardy is a shock target for Atletico Madrid.
The Leicester striker, 31, is on the Spanish giants’ list of targets to replace Antoine Griezmann when the Frenchman joins Barcelona this summer.
The Catalan giants are ready to match Griezmann’s £89million release clause and add firepower their attack.
Fernando Torres could also leave Atletico and Vardy is on Diego Simeone’s radar after impressing against them in the Champions League last season.
His goalscoring has continued his amazing form this campaign with 23 goals and a place in England’s squad for the World Cup.
The Foxes want to extend his contract to keep him at the King Power.
He broke through the £100,000-a-week barrier when he last agreed a new deal, which has two years left to run.
But he is in line for £140,000-a-week with an extension to make sure his future is secured with the Foxes.
Vardy scored 20 league goals in the last campaign taking his tally to 57 over the last three seasons.
Manchester City failed to land him in the January transfer window but Pep Guardiola will return with a £65million offer for Mahrez this summer.
