Foxes admit Koren interest
Leicester manager Paulo Sousa has admitted his interested in free agent Robert Koren.
The midfielder has been without a club since his contract with West Brom expired this summer, and Sousa has revealed that he is keen to add the Slovenian to his side.
'He has been promoted twice with West Bromwich Albion and he can play in two different positions, as a wide man and also inside - with goals.
'He has a good understanding of the game, good passing and good decision making in the last stages.
'I would like to have him.'
Celtic, Wolves and Blackpool have all also been linked with moves for the midfielder, who captained his nation Slovenia at the World Cup this summer.
The player's agent Zoran Krenta said that Koren wished to make a decision on his future last weekend.
'Robi want to be back in full time training and to link up with a new manager and team-mates,' he said.
'We believe we have all our final offers in now and its down to Robi to make a decision on where he feels comfortable moving his family to and working with.
'We hope to have things sorted in the next 48 hours if it all possible. I would like to see him stay in England as he has built himself a name here, but Serie A is an attractive option for any player'.
Koren made 124 league appearances for West Brom during his three seasons with the club, forging an admirable playing reputation in the process.
The 29-year-old hit 16 goals in his time at the Hawthorns, on the way taking his place as one of the Championship's most impressive attacking midfielders.
And Foxes manager Sousa has made his admiration for the player public, interest which could be followed up this week with investment in the club imminent.
