Free agent Leroy Litas is a target for Leicester manager Nigel Pearson, according to BBC Sport´s gossip page.

Lita is available for nothing after being released by Reading this summer, along with Michael Duberry, Graeme Murty & Marcus Hahnemann.

The 24-year-old spent time on loan at relegated Norwich last season, where he found the net 7 times in 16 appearances.

As well as his 20 goals in 77 appearances for Reading, Lita has a good record at England Under-21 level, finding the net 6 times in 9 appearances.

Pearson would know Lita from his time coaching with the England Under-21´s, and is now rumoured to want the player to add to his weak front line.
