Leicester are in talks with Sampdoria over the signing of striker Eder, according to Sky in Italy.

Foxes manager Claudio Ranieri admitted last week he was interested in signing a new forward before the transfer deadline and Eder is one of a number of targets.

It is understood Sampdoria want a fee of around £10m for the 29-year-old Italy international, who was born in Brazil.

And a three-year contract worth around £29,000-per-week is thought to have been offered to the player.

Eder has scored 40 Serie A goals since joining Sampdoria in 2012 from Empoli. He previously spent time on loan at Brescia and Cesena, and has eight caps and two goals for Italy.
