Jamie Vardy, a striker for Leicester City, is allegedly a target for Chelsea this summer.
Chelsea and Manchester United are reportedly keeping an eye on the 35-year-circumstances old’s at the King Power Stadium.
According to the source, Leicester’s talisman is in demand from the two Premier League heavyweights, who are looking to add a fresh center-forward to their squads.
Vardy is a seasoned striker who still has what it takes to perform at the highest level. He scored 17 goals in just 33 outings last season across all competitions.
Could he abruptly leave the Foxes with just one year left on his contract after ten years at Leicester?

Chelsea is considering Jimmy Vardy
Vardy is a fresh name that has surfaced in Chelsea’s pursuit for a new No. 9 this summer.
After agreeing to loan Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan, they urgently need another attacker, making Kai Havertz the front-runner to begin the season in the centre of the attack.
The forward for Leicester has 133 goals in 270 Premier League games, making him the epitome of experience.
Vardy may be a temporary fix, but he will turn 36 in January, so that makes him unlikely to be a long-term fix.
Former teammate of Vardy’s at Chelsea, wingback Ben Chilwell, once compared the legendary player from Leicester to Timo Werner.
Chilwell stated of Werner in 2020, “In terms of running the channels and how quick he is, it’s akin to Vards.”
With their speed and agility, both attackers are a nuisance for defenders, but judging on the past two years, Leicester’s star is far superior than him.
Werner is still much too unreliable in front of goal, but Vardy has polished his art of the clinical finisher.
