Transfer: Turkish Giant Fenerbahçe Keen On Signing Iheanacho


Fenerbahçe are keen to sign, Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho on a two-year loan deal from Leicester.

The Turkish club want the 23-year-old to replace Vedat Muriqi and are set to offer the Foxes €12m to secure his services.

Fenerbahçe are reportedly in advanced talks with Lazio to sell Muriqi while Iheanacho could be his replacement.

Iheanacho scored 10 goals for Leicester City in all competitions last season and was a repeatedly used member of Brendan Rodgers’ squad, making 26 appearances. However, the Turkish hope would be that he fancies being a nailed on starter elsewhere.

The 23 year old has been linked with a move to Turkey before with the likes of Trabzonspor and Besiktas said to be interested.

His contract with Leicester City will expire at the end of June 2023, so in the unlikely event they would agree to a two year loan, they may also want to extend the player’s contract.
