West Bromwich Albion are weighing up a move for Leicester City’s Leonardo Ulloa, according to a report in The Sun.

The Argentine striker has found game-time hard to come by this campaign and has started just one Premier League match for the reigning English champions, against Middlesbrough in Monday’s drab goalless draw.

Last season, his six goals helped Claudio Ranieri’s men to an unlikely league title but has found the back of the net just once this term.

Baggies boss Tony Pulis is reported to be interested in taking the former Brighton and Hove Albion man to the Hawthorns Stadium.

Basement side Hull City, who sacked manager Mike Phelan earlier this week, are also believed to be keen on the forward.

Ulloa has made it clear that he wishes to leave the King Power stadium in search for more minutes on the pitch.

However, Ranieri is not thought to be willing to sanction a transfer, with summer signing Islam Slimani off to the African Cup of Nations with Algeria

Pulis’ West Brom have had an impressive first-half of the season and currently occupy eighth place in the table, as they push for a Europa League spot.

The former Stoke City boss is looking to add more firepower to his squad, in order to ease the burden on top scorer Salomon Rondon, who has seven goals to his name.

Ulloa will be hoping to show what he can do from the off on Saturday, when the Foxes travel to Goodison Park to take on Everton in the third round of the FA Cup.
