Super Eagles star Kelechi Iheanacho may be leaving Premier League side Leicester City this summer after being linked with a move to join Turkish side Fenerbahce.
Fenerbahce are said to be interested in the signing of the Nigerian star so as for them to bolster their quad ahead of their campaign for next season.
According to the report on Complete Sports, Fenerbahce are keen to sign Kelechi Iheanacho on a two-year loan deal from Leicester City.
The Turkish club want the 23-year-old Nigerian to replace Vedat Muriqi and are set to offer the Foxes €12m to secure his services this summer.
Last season, Kelechi Iheanacho failed to get regular playing time at Leicester City as the club's manager preferred Jamie Vardy up front.
And despite being a 33-year-old striker, Jamie Vardy was superb last season for Leicester City winning the golden boot award.
Leicester City on the other hand are looking for the signature of Odsonne Edouard and they will need to offer Celtic big deal for the chance to sign him this summer.
The Foxes failed to finish among the top four last season in the Premier League, but they will be playing in the Europa League next season.
Iheanacho who joined Leicester City from Manchester City in 2017 scored five League goals for the Foxes last term.
