Barely some hours after Leicester City dragged Nigeria’s forward, Kelechi Iheanacho, into the transfer market, Aston Villa showed interest in obtaining the Super Eagles striker.
The Daily Mail of UK reported that the 23-year-old joined Leicester from Manchester City for £25m in 2017 and has been used predominantly from the bench by manager Brendan Rodgers.
He still managed ten goals in 26 appearances but Leicester want to strengthen their forward options and are willing to sell Kelechi to fund their plans.
Selling Iheanacho can help offset their spending with midlands neighbours Aston Villa among those showing an interest.
The Nigerian managed a respectable 10 goals in all competitions this season and is bound to have suitors.
