Premier League side Leicester City are reportedly planning to sell Nigerian star Kelechi Iheanacho this summer after four years that the 23-year-old joined the Foxes.
At the just concluded 2019/20 Premier League season, Leicester City were unable to finish among the top four on the final table, but they will play in the Champions League.
Iheanacho who joined the Foxes from Manchester City had lack of active playing time last season as he was unable to beat Jamie Vardy for the starting lineup.
The signing of Ayoze Perez from Newcastle United also affected the progress of Kelechi Iheanacho at Leicester City last season.
But despite all the challenges Kelechi Iheanacho faced last term at Leicester City, the Nigerian was still able to play 26 games in all competition and scored 10 goals.
According to the report on Complete Sports, Leicester City are targeting Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard and they need to sell Iheanacho to raise money for his signature.
The club's chiefs want Edouard to provide good cover up for first choice striker Jamie Vardy in their campaign next season in the Europa League.
Edouard was impressive for Celtic last season scoring 21 goals and provided 12 assists in 27 games for the Scottish side.
