We have been linked with Kelechi Iheanacho but late last night the rumours really started to gather momentum…. and Leicester City are hotly tipped to be in for the Man City whizz kid striker. The fee will probably be around £25m and again the rumours are Man City will want a “buy back” clause so if Kelechi Iheanacho goes on to become a superstar they will have first options to buy him back… We have all seen what a mistake Chelsea made with Lukaku and some of the BIG clubs are starting to insist on first options at agreed clause costs for some of their young players.
So could this happen ? Well it looks very likely that he WILL be leaving Man City this summer, and a move to Leicester could well suit his style, a link up with Jamie Vardy up front could be a lethal combination.
The 20 year old has already played for his national country Nigeria and has scored goals in the Premier League in the last 2 seasons, which is EXACTLY what the fans at Leicester have been calling out for. We NEED players with Premier experience. We have seen that Musa, Mendy and Slimani all have taken time to “bed in” and the fans have been calling for players who know the league. Harry Maguire has ticked that box, and he is young, with lots to prove…. so could Iheanacho be next to tick those boxes ?
We asked the Leicester City fans what they thought about the possibility of Kelechi Iheanacho joining the Blues….
“Please hope this is true his goal to minute ratio is class, he is a bit raw still but at his age could comfortably grow. has plenty of experience in the team and players he’s with. No brainer imo and he wasn’t given a big money contract either so wages on our side shouldn’t be an issue.”
“We’re odds on with Skybet to sign him, go get him Shakey !”
“Pay the money now pls”
“Finally 😊 It’s what Man City wanted too. Next Sigurdsson”
“Not done until he’s holding that Leicester shirt. So right now it’s still only a wish it’s true”
“Get him in, young and got a great future ahead of him, he can score goals”
“Now this would be a big statement.Excellent signing if it comes off”
“Good about time and he’s not from hull”
“John Percy from telegraph reporting it. Normally spot on with Lcfc stuff.”
