Kelechi Iheanacho’s future in doubt as Leicester sign £30m Premier League striker.

Kelechi Iheanacho, Super Eagles forward, faces an uncertain future at the club after they agreed a £30million deal for Newcastle United’s Ayoze Perez.

Meanwhile, Sky Sports reports that Leicester City have a deal in place to buy the Spaniard, subject to a medical and personal terms being agreed.

The Spanish International had been linked with a return to his homeland, after saying last season to go back to your country and play for a big team, would be something great for my career.

However Ayoze Perez enjoyed his most productive season at Newcastle since moving to Tyneside from Tenerife in 2014, scoring 12 Premier League goals last term to finish as the club’s top scorer.

Although Kelechi Iheanacho, began the summer on a bad note, after he was dropped from Nigeria’s squad to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

No doubt the attacker is focused on breaking into the Leicester City team under new manager, Brendan Rodgers.

But the arrival of former Newcastle player, might now see him slip down the pecking order at the King Power Stadium.
