Craig Shakespeare is ready to pay £25million move for Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho, as Leicester prepare to shape up their squad for the new season.
Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare is doing everything in his power to land Manchester City Nigerian forward Kelechi Iheanacho.
The 53 year old manager, has already lodged a bid of £25m for the forward, after being alerted of Iheanacho’s availability, and is ready to pay a significant fee for the Nigeria international.
Iheanacho, 20, has been told he can leave the club and Leicester City who are leading the queue, have also promised him a new role just behind the striker.
Leicester wants to ease the burden on England international Jamie Vardy and sees the addition of another forward as a priority.
And Shakespeare believe Iheanacho represents good value for the price required.
Other clubs already being linked with the ace are West Ham, Crystal Palace and Everton.
