Reports stemming from Spain have linked three of the Premier League’s top clubs with Leicester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho.
Kelechi Iheanacho continues to impress
Kelechi Iheanacho would link up with Leicester in 2017, departing Premier League powerhouse, Manchester City.
Since making the switch to the King Power, Iheanacho has not been the most prolific of goalscorers.
2019/20, for example, saw the Nigerian score just 10 goals in all competitions, five of which were in the Premier League.
This term though, and especially in the last few months, Iheanacho has been playing some sensational football and has even been netting more than Leicester’s main striker, Jamie Vardy of late.
The Foxes are of course into the FA Cup final. And Iheanacho played a huge role in that, scoring the only goal of the game vs Brighton in the 5th round, scoring two and assisting one as Leicester beat Manchester United 3-1 in the quarters and then netting the only goal of the game in the semis vs Southampton.
The 24-year-old’s league form has been equally impressive of late. In Leicester’s last six PL games, Iheanacho has managed to score a staggering eight goals.
Arsenal, Chelsea & Manchester United eyeing Kelechi Iheanacho
Such fine form recently saw the hitman with a new contract until 2024.
Despite only signing his new deal earlier this month, Iheanacho has already been linked with other clubs.
According to Leicester Mercury, citing Spanish outlet Fichajes, Iheanacho is being tracked by all of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United.
It is added that Man United are interested in the striker as a replacement for Edison Cavani who is expected to leave Old Trafford this summer.
No potential fee is mentioned in the report. But given his new contract and sensational form, it is hard to see Leicester letting Iheanacho go on the cheap.
