The 21-year-old is poised to quit Parkhead during the summer as he is disenchanted at his of lack of regular first-team football.
SPL outfit Livingston have expressed their willingness to hand Crainey the chance to reignite his career but the £500,000 fee is out of their reach.
South of the border, relegated Sunderland are believed to be monitoring the situation, although Black Cats manager Mick McCarthy must offload players before he can bring in new faces.
Premiership new boys Leicester have now joined in the hunt for the centre half, who has been capped at senior level by Scotland.
Crainey's price tag is unlikely to deter The Foxes with manager Micky Adams seeking to buttress his squad ahead of the club's return to the elite.
