Leicester take lead in race to sign Nigeria’s Iheanacho – 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers
Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho

Leicester City have emerged as the favourites to sign Kelechi Iheanacho from Manchester City, according to bookmakers SkyBET.
The Super Eagles attacker is expected to be no more than a peripheral figure at the Etihad Stadium next season, opening the way for a transfer.
Rumours about his future began emerging in May, with Sky Sports reporting that West Ham United had submitted an official bid.
SkyBET soon made the Hammers favourites to sign Iheanacho, though over the weekend they have updated their odds, with the Foxes now leading the pack.
This is despite Leicester already boasting the attacking talents of Jamie Vardy, Ahmed Musa, Islam Slimani, Shinji Okazaki and Leonardo Ulloa.
Iheanacho would represent a great signing for either side, though they will have to come up with some big money to land the Nigeria, who is expected to cost somewhere in the region of 20-million.
