But Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is also interested — along with Borussia Dortmund and Monaco.

City boss Pep Guardiola wants to sign England right-back Walker, 27.

But the clubs hit a stalemate as Spurs are holding out for £50m.

Iheanacho could help push the move through with the 20-year-old going to White Hart Lane in a player-plus-cash deal.

Iheanacho banged in 14 goals when he first broke into City’s first team two seasons ago.

But he managed just eight in nine starts last term with Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero both ahead of him in the Etihad pecking order.

Iheanacho could be joined out the door by Wilfried Bony, another City striker.

The £28million flop is reportedly wanted by Marseille along with fellow Ligue 1 side Lille and a number of Chinese Super League clubs.
