Iheanacho attracts Hoffenheim’s attention

Bundesliga side Hoffenheim are reportedly weighing up a move for Manchester City’s Nigerian striker Kelechi Iheanacho.

According to reports last night, City will consider selling Iheanacho in the summer, with a buy-back clause included in any deal they strike with a buyer.

And it has emerged that Hoffenheim will look into signing the Super Eagles youngster from the Citizens, provided they can secure qualification for next season’s UEFA Champions League.

“It is true Hoffenheim are interested in Kelechi Iheanacho. He is one of the three strikers on their list but they have not started negotiating with him yet,” a source said.

The 20-year-old Iheanacho has been a part of City’s first team squad for the past two seasons, but is set to find himself down the pecking order behind Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus.
