Wolverhampton Wanderers are eyeing a move for Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho, according to Football Insider.

Wolves are looking to bring in a new forward before the end of the current transfer window.

The Premier League club have identified Iheanacho, as well as three other potential striker signings, as a realistic late-window target.

Another Premier League club, Crystal Palace, are also reportedly on the trail of the Nigeria international. The 26-year-old has less than 12 months on his contract and will be free to negotiate a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs in January.

Iheanacho has scored one goal and provided two assists in five appearances for Leicester City this season.

He netted eight times and registered five assists in 35 league appearances for the Foxes last season and was named the club’s Player of the Season.

Leicester City paid Manchester City £25 million to sign him in 2017.
