Leicester City Forward Kelechi Iheanacho Set To Join Aston Villa

Super Eagles attacker Kelechi Iheanacho is set to leave Leicester City this summer as Aston Villa and West Brom are reportedly in serious race to sign the Nigerian forward .

At the recently concluded Premier League season won by Liverpool, Iheanacho struggled at Leicester City as Jamie Vardy was the number one choice.

And the England international even finished the Premier League season as the highest goal-scorer winning the Golden Boot.

Despite not having enough chances to play, the Nigeria International scored 10 goals in 29 games for Leicester City.

After struggling to score goals last season and also escaped relegation, Aston Villa are looking for new striker who will help them next season in the Premier League.

They see the Nigerian as a player who would help them in all their campaign and they will make their offer when the transfer window open.

West Brom on the other hand are back in the Premier League after two years in the Sky Bet Championship and are looking to add more firepower to their attack.
