Nigeria’s superstar, Kelechi Iheanacho could be on his way to Chelsea with the Blues manager Thomas Tuchel very convinced.
Viewing the Leicesters forward as an improvement to his team’s attack, according to Spanish publications, Fichajes.
Tuchel seem not to be a biggest fan of Tammy Abraham, with the ex-PSG boss leaving the young Englishman out of Chelsea’s starting lineup serially.
Meanwhile, Erling Haaland is expected to be the Blues’ top priority but the fierce competition for the Norwegian’s signature may force the Londoners into seeking alternatives.
If incase the Blues misses out on the Borussia Dortmund striker, Iheanacho is one big name being considered by Tuchel, because the Chelsea gaffer is impressed with the talents of Iheanacho, who is one of the most in-form strikers in England at the moment. The Super Eagles star has racked up 15 in 31 appearances for the Foxes.
Although, Chelsea are not the only Premier League teams interested in securing the signature of Iheanacho, with the reports suggesting that Manchester United and Arsenal are watching the 24-year-old.
However, Leicester City who acquired Iheanacho for £24 million in 2017, are unlikely to let the forward leave on a cheap, especially as they see him as the long-term replacement for aging striker Jamie Vardy.
