Leicester City striker Leonardo Ulloa is considering handing in a transfer request, as he becomes increasingly frustrated with a lack of first-team opportunities this season, according to Sky sources.
The Argentine's only Premier League start came against Middlesbrough on January 2.
Ulloa, 30, has 18 months left on his current contract but he's yet to be offered a new deal by Leicester.
Sources close to the player indicate he is still very fond of Leicester but he is keen to sort out his future because he is aware his next contract could be his last before he retires.
Unlike some other members of Leicester's title-winning squad, Ulloa wasn't offered improved terms in the summer, though he did receive the same bonuses as his team-mates.
Claudio Ranieri has said publicly he wants to keep the striker.
Leicester turned down a £9m bid for Ulloa in the summer, and sources indicate the club also rejected an approach from an unnamed Spanish club last week.
It is believed a number of Spanish clubs are monitoring Ulloa's situation, and further offers are expected before the January window closes.
