Chelsea eye mega move for Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy

Ahmed Musa

Vardy scored twice in Leicester's opening game of the season, a 4-3 defeat at Arsenal.

The England global made an explosive start to the new campaign as he netted twice in the Foxes opening day loss to Arsenal.

Like Vardy, captain Wes Morgan was also left nursing an injury following the 2-0 win against Brighton.

Vardy was actually forced off the pitch in the final minutes of the match with a foot injury.

Craig Shakespeare has revealed that Jamie Vardy will be fit in time to feature in the Carabao Cup against Sheffield United on Tuesday.

Diego Costa out, Jamie Vardy in?

While Costa likes to play with his back to goal, Leicester and Vardy have carved open many defences by sending balls over the top and through the middle for the pace merchant to chase onto.

Macy's cuts 100 jobs, shakes up merchandising efforts
Kantor has 35 years with the company, including roles as chairman and president for merchandising for macys.com. Lawton who worked for Home Depot and McKinsey & Co. before becoming a senior vice president at eBay .

At the same time, Michy Batshuayi is being linked with a possible move before the summer window shuts.

Chelsea will be well aware that snapping up Vardy's signature will be a real bargain, because Leicester will probably be unable to negotiate too much considering the player's age.

Antonio Conte has reportedly grown frustrated with the Chelsea board over their inability to secure more new signings, this summer.

In addition to Vardy's search, the programme will also provide a behind the scenes look at the striker's academy as a whole, and give a brief overview of his own rapid rise from playing with non-league outfit Stockbridge Park Steels in 2007 to lifting the Premier League title with the Foxes in May 2016.

That means he's far more likely to move to Stamford Bridge than former targets Sergio Aguero (8/1) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (10/1), with a deal looking increasingly likely.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "This one really has come out of nowhere, but with Chelsea in desperate need of some added firepower up top, we're taking no chances".
