In-form Super Eagles striker Kelechi Iheanacho has told Leicester City he is ready to sign a new long-term deal this summer.
The 24-year-old enters the final year of his current £60,000-a-week five-year-deal this summer.
And The Foxes want to tie their hitman down on a lucrative new deal, following his recent outstanding form.
According to SunSport, the Nigerian, who has been directly involved in 15 goals in 15 starts this season, has no desire to leave Leicester and is in it for the long haul as he looks to emerge as Jamie Vardy's natural successor.
And with the third-placed Foxes closing in on a Champions League qualifying place and FA Cup final, Brendan Rodgers feels he has a huge part to play in the club's future.
Rodgers' re-emergence as one of the most coveted bosses in the country will play a huge factor in Iheanacho's desire to commit his best years to the Foxes.
Iheanacho currently earns £60k-a-week but could expect to bump that up to £90,000-a-week as Vardy's long term successor.
