To be out of favor is a difficult situation for any player, and for Kelechi Iheanacho it’s been difficult. Brendan Rodgers decided to keep him over the summer and let Islam Slimani leave as he continues to play with one single forward.
The Leicester City DNA is build on a single striker, being Jamie Vardy, and with the form he is showing at the moment, you will be nuts to leave him out, even if you play a weaker team in the chase for a great position in the PL and going into the final stages of those Cup competitions.
Rumors are out there linking Kelechi Iheanacho up with different teams and an 18month loan deal with Turkish club Fotospor is said to be close. Besiktas are also said to be showing interest, so Turkey looks like the next destination for the Nigerian international.
After joining Leicester City in the summer of 2017 from Manchester City chances have been limited and so far 51 PL appearances and 4 goals is his fasit. Most of the games are from the sub bench, so it’s also difficult to judge him on that low goal ratio.
As we have seen in the past a move could be a solution as you will get a chance to play and show your skills and abilities elsewhere. TCF believe in this rumour as a clear indication that Brendan Rodgers looks to be eager to close in on a different type of striker as a possible cover for Jamie Vardy or a player to use in combination with the Leicester City talisman.
