Both West Ham United and Everton are considering a move for Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho. Iheanacho has found first-team opportunities limited following the arrival of Gabriel Jesus in January and could fall further down the pecking order with coach Pep Guardiola keen to add Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez to his squad. Sergio Aguero is also expected to stay at City despite speculation over his future.
Guardiola has spoken highly of Iheanacho’s qualities, but the 20-year-old has played just 111 minutes in the Premier League since the turn of the year and reports have suggested City would consider selling for offers in excess of £20 million. West Ham are prepared to meet that price, while Everton see him as a possible replacement for Romelu Lukaku if the Belgium international leaves. Iheanacho, who has seven goals in all competitions this season, said in March that he was prepared to fight for his City future.
