Leicester in place to sign £25m Kelechi Iheanacho from Manchester City

Leicester City are hopeful of signing Kelechi Iheanacho from Manchester City for a deal of around £25m, as per reliable reports from England.

The 20-year-old Nigerian has other clubs pursuing him and Manchester City do not expect any transfer to be completed for another couple of weeks, but Leicester are at the front of the queue after putting together a financial package that would take their summer spending past £50m.

Iheanacho is highly rated at City and has an impressive record, scoring 21 goals from 64 games despite more than half of those appearances being from the bench.

Yet he started only five Premier League matches last season and that situation is unlikely to improve with Sergio Agüero and Gabriel Jesus competing to be City’s first-choice centre forward.
