Nottingham Forest could be about to make a move for ex-Leicester City striker Leonardo Ulloa, according to Marca.
The 33-year-old striker was deemed surplus to requirements at the King Power Stadium last summer, which led to him joining C.F. Pachuca on a permanent basis.
He enjoyed a successful debut season with Los Tuzos in Liga MX, contributing 14 goals.
After signing for Leicester in 2014 for £8 million (Guardian), he found that his first team opportunities at the King Power Stadium were gradually declining.
The 33-year-old scored 11 league goals in 37 appearances in his debut season for the Foxes. He remained involved for the club’s historic Premier League triumph in the 2015/16 season. He made 29 league appearances during that campaign, scoring six goals.
Since then, he’s been able to seemingly regain his form and fitness at C.F. Pachuca. However, he’s keen to make a return to Europe this summer. The Reds aren’t the only side interested in securing his signature.
According to Marca, Real Betis, Leganés, Alavés and Almería are all also understood to be keen on signing him.
The Seat Pitch Summary
There’s no doubt that Sabri Lamouchi needs to add another striker to his squad before the transfer window shuts.
When the 33-year-old striker last played in the Championship, he was regarded as one of the most dangerous forward players in the division.
His goal against the Reds at the City Ground at the end of the 2013/14 season to secure Brighton & Hove Albion a play-off place summed up what he’s all about.
It didn’t go to plan for him at Leicester in his last few years at the King Power Stadium. There will be doubts about the lack of football he has played of late.
A move back to the Championship looks like being a wise one for Ulloa. He clearly still has the ability to still be a threat.
Coming in at over six foot, there’s no doubt that he would add a focal point to Lamouchi’s side moving forward.
