Manchester City look willing to sell £25million-rated Kelechi Iheanacho to West Ham or Leicester this summer… but will insist on a buy-back clause.
The Nigerian forward, 20, has shone at the Etihad when given the chance, boasting one of the best minutes per goal ratio in the Premier League.
However, he now has to contend with both Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus and has seen his game-time dry up.
With a number of clubs interested in bringing in Iheanacho, Pep Guardiola now appears ready to cash in on his young star.
However, the Spaniard will insist on any potential buyer agreeing to a buy-back clause in the contract in order to bring him back should he live up to his incredible potential.
The fee inserted into Iheanacho’s contract is expected to be around the £35m-mark, according to The Telegraph.
Leicester are one club intrigued by the prospect of the Man City outcast, while West Ham are another.
The Foxes are willing to spend big this summer in order to bounce back from a disappointing season, with Iheanacho one of the priority targets.
Meanwhile, the Hammers are eyeing up their second City swoop of the summer, having landed free agent Pablo Zabaleta already.
Slaven Bilic is keen to inject some youth and pace into his squad this summer, with Iheanacho seemingly a perfect fit.
A spate of risky signings – including Simone Zaza and Jonathan Calleri – failed to pay off, with Bilic keen to add a youngster with Premier League experience.
Crystal Palace and Everton are two other clubs who have expressed an interets in Iheanacho this summer.
