Leicester City have made a new offer for Albion striker Leo Ulloa.
The Argus understands the Foxes have bid more than £6 million for the Argentinean.
If the offer were accepted, Ulloa would become a club record signing for the Premier League new boys.
Leicester secured last season’s 22-goal top scorer David Nugent on a new two-year deal yesterday.
But The Argus reported this morning that would not mean a cooling of their interest in Ulloa.
It would appear they now plan to further test Albion’s resolve with a bid well below what is reported to be a £10 million asking price.
Ulloa is currently in pre-season training with the Seagulls at their base in Spain and was pictured today in good spirits with colleagues during a morning workout.
The club have consistently said they have no need or wish to sell their star striker.
Leicester's current record was set in 2000 when they paid £5 million for Ade Akinbiyi.
