The Daily Mail reported that both the Swansea City and Leicester City were contacted if a deal could be sealed on the striker.

Swansea City who were struggling not to be relegated last season were unlikely to significantly increase their wage bill in case they ended up in the Championship while The Foxes, while riding high in the table with narrow winnings, were not ready to tamper with their wage structure as manager Claudio Ranieri remains grounded amid the possibility of getting the English Premier League which they ultimately did even before the last match of the league.
