Leicester confident of securing £25m Kelechi Iheanacho deal


Leicester are reportedly on the verge of securing the signature of Manchester city striker Kelechi Iheanacho for £25m.

The 20-year-Nigerian is thought to be keen on the move after finding play time hard to come by, especially after Brazilian Gabriel Jesus joined the club in January and pushed Sergio Aguero further down the pecking order.

Iheanacho has 21 goals in 64 games for Manchester city since making his debut in 2015. Last year, he signed a new contract lasting till 2021 at the etihad stadium.

He will be linking up with fellow Nigerian international team mate Ahmed Musa among a host of other quality players in the team that won the Premier League title in 2015/2016 season.
