Former Premier League champions, Leicester City are willing to listen to offers for Nigeria’s Kelechi Iheanacho in a bid to fund the transfer of their number one target and on-demand £40m Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard, AOIFootball.com reports.
The 23-year-old joined Leicester from Manchester City for £25m in the summer of 2017 and has been used predominantly from the bench by manager Brendan Rodgers but the club are now willing to listen to offers matching the player’s valuation
Selling Iheanacho can help offset their spending with midlands neighbour’s Aston Villa among those showing interest.
Iheanacho still managed a respectable 10 goals in all competitions this season and will definable not be shy of suitors both home and abroad.
The Nigerian has struggled to cement a starter’s shirt since his big-money move from Manchester City, managing just 20 goals in 89 club appearances with half of those goals coming in the just-concluded campaign.
