Newcastle Has A New Plan To POACH Iheanacho From Leicester City
Following Kelechi Iheanacho terrific form for Leicester City in the FA Cup this season, Premier League giants, Newcastle United are said to interest in the young Nigerian attacker but the Foxes are unlikely to want to sell right now.
Newcastle are currently in the market to secure attacking recruitment, and they have been heavily linked with Feyenoord’s Nicolai Jorgensen in recent times.
The Magpies have been prepared to bid for Jorgensen, but have failed in their pursuit so far and they are now looking at Iheanacho directions as a possible solution to their attacking woes. Iheanacho could be a potentially stunning signing for Newcastle, and he could be a man who Rafael Benitez could form his attack around for years in the future.
The 21-year-old Super Eagles striker is still developing in the role, but his goal-scoring record when he was at Manchester City suggested he had an extremely bright future. Iheanacho has struggled in the Premier League for Leicester but he is starting to hit form.
The 21-year-old has hit four goals in three appearances in 2018, and Newcastle may just have missed their chance.
With Iheanacho starting to show signs of promise, Leicester will surely not want to sell, after having to be patient so far. And even though Iheanacho would be a wonderful addition for the Magpies to make, it seems as if there is very little chance of Benitez’s side pulling off a deal.
