Kelechi Iheanacho On Besiktas Winter Shopping List

BY GODWIN AIKIGBE

Sportsrollcall.com understands that unsettled Leicester City striker, Kelechi Iheanacho is on the winter shopping list of Besiktas, as they look for a replacement for Cenk Tosun, who is joining Everton in a £27 million deal.

The 21-year-old has failed to break into the Foxes’ starting eleven following his sensational € 27.7 million transfer from Manchester City on August 2, 2017.

He has started just two of nine games, rendering an assist with no goal to his name this season. He was at some point relegated to the reserves and scored on his only outing with them.

The U17 World Cup winner with Nigeria was a major hit at Manchester City, where he made the most of fringe roles, netting 14 times in 46 games for the Citizens.

A move to Besiktas offers Iheanacho a chance at regular football, which he requires to be in top shape ahead of 2018 World Cup campaign with Nigeria.
