Leicester City are ramping up their interest in Fiorentina attacking midfielder Josip Ilicic, according to La Nazione.
The Florence-based newspaper claims Claudio Ranieri has set his sights firmly on the Slovenia international.
The 28-year-old is only under contract until 2018 and has been at the Stadio Franchi since 2013.
This season he scored 15 goals with six assists between Serie A and the Europa League.
A left-footed free kick specialist, Ilicic has been linked with Leicester for some time.
The Foxes are expected to make an offer in the region of €15m.
