Yakubu and Diomansy Kamara could be in line to spearhead Leicester’s attack against their former club Pompey this weekend.
Kamara is being tipped to join the Foxes in an emergency loan deal over the next 24 hours.
Leicester boss Sven-Goran Eriksson revealed earlier this week he was hoping to bring in a ‘top player’ before the window shuts a week tomorrow.
Kamara’s expected arrival would reunite the Senegal international with the striker he last played alongside at Fratton Park. Yakubu was team-mates with Kamara during the 2004-05 season.
Yakubu is on loan at Leicester from Everton until the end of the season, while Kamara is surplus to requirements at Craven Cottage.
