The Super Eagles forward has found regular game time hard to come by since Pep Guardiola took over at the Etihad last season.

According to ESPN FC, Leicester City are in advanced talks to sign Iheanacho, for a fee believed to be in the region of £25 million (R431 million).

The Foxes' head coach, Craig Shakespeare, is believed to keen on bolstering his attack, and apparently sees the 20-year-old as a suitable partner for Jamie Vardy.

Despite being earmarked for an exit, Guardiola has reportedly added Iheanacho to his pre-season plans.

Pep won't make it in England, he can be given 10 years, he won't make it. My advice to him, PLS LEAVE NOW BEFORE YOU WASTE CLUB MONEY and SOME OTHER PLAYERS FUTURE.
