Leicester City target Armenian striker Yura Movsisyan

England’s Leicester City have expressed an interest in Spartak Moscow striker Yura Movsisyan, the Daily Mail reports.

The 26-year-old Armenian smashed 21 goals in 34 games for the Russian giants last season and is attracting interest from clubs in England, Germany and Italy.

Movsisyan has also been linked with West Brom and is available for around £7m.

‘I’ve heard there may be some interested teams in England and Germany,” Movsisyan said earlier this month. ‘Let’s see if that is serious or not.

‘I’ve proven I can score goals wherever I have played and I have been lucky to do so again this year with Spartak.

‘It wasn’t the season that we wanted but we have a quality group. I’m up for a challenge and always want to test myself against the best.

‘If an offer is made for me, I can’t control the outcome. Spartak know my ambition and all parties need to be satisfied. Either way, I want success on the field.’
