Iheanacho on West Ham’s radar



English Premier League club West Ham United are considering a bid for Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho as they attempt to add pace to their squad.

The Hammers are prioritising attacking players this summer as they look to have a better 2017-18 season.

Iheanacho is under contract at Manchester City until 2021, but the Citizens are prepared to listen to offers of around £20 million to help finance their spending plans for the summer, according to the Evening Standard.

Nigerian international Iheanacho has seen his first team opportunities at City lessen under manager Pep Guardiola, and although he has made 19 appearances for the Citizens this season, he has started only five matches.

He has scored four goals and made three assists, despite completing only one full game.

The previous campaign, when Manuel Pellegrini was in charge, was more fruitful for Iheanacho, who scored 14 goals in 35 games.

Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund are also reported to be interested in Iheanacho, with the added incentive of being able to offer Champions League football.
