Top Turkish sides Besiktas, Galatasaray and Fenerbahce are after the signature of Super Eagles striker, Kelechi Iheanacho, according to Takvim.

The Nigerian has spent his career in the Premier League, with a decent spell at Manchester City, albeit a bit part role, meant that to further his chances he would have to leave the Etihad Stadium. The Foxes swooped in and grabbed the former FIFA U-17 star for a bargain sum of £25m in 2017.

The Leicester City frontman helped the Foxes win the Championship this season, and secure an instant return to the Premier League. Leicester will be keen to keep the core of their squad ahead of what will be a difficult campaign but have to be realistic with players’ ambitions and balance the books.

The three Turkish clubs have all made contact with the striker’s agent, but it is the latter of this trio that could hold the aces. Rogon Management looks after the players and they have done business with them many times.

The next couple of weeks will be crucial, as teams will want to nail down some early signings before players go into major tournaments or have the chance to gain some rest before preseason starts again.
