Yesterday morning I suggested that Harry Redknapp should sign one of his former strikers in the former of Chelsea and Crystal Palance loanee Loic Remy.

That suggestion was met with a combination of both delight and a little hesitation and rightly so because he is very injury prone but he is also a very good striker when he is fit and I believe he would be perfect for the Championship.

Following on from that feature, I have found another Premier League winning striker that I believe Redknapp and his team should seriously consider in this summer transfer window.

I believe that 30-year-old Leonardo Ulloa would be the perfect striker for Redknapp to bring in for the upcoming Sky Bet Championship season.

Although he only scored one goal in 23 appearances in all competitions for the Foxes last season, the majority of his game time came from the bench following a fall out at the back end of their title winning season.

With that in mind, I believe that Craig Shakespeare could well be looking to offload the striker this summer and with his previous knowledge of the Championship I believe he could come into serious consideration.

During his time with Brighton and Hove Albion, Ulloa made 54 appearances in the Championship scoring 23 goals, proving that he certainly had what it took to be a successful striker in this division.

And with just one year left on his current deal, I believe that Leicester would be willing to sell Ulloa on for a fee of around £4 million, a price that could prove to be a bargain should he pick up where he left off from the last time he was in the Championship.

Yesterday I likened Che Adams to a young Jermaine Defoe, well I feel like Ulloa could become our main source of goals if we signing him just like Glenn Murray became Brighton’s and look where they are now!

Blues fans, do you feel as though signing Leonardo Ulloa would enhance our chances of going up next season? Let us know your thoughts on the 30-year-old in the comment section down below!
