- Updates on Iheanacho’s future direction towards Nottingham Forest Everton links
Leicester City manager Enzo Maresca has revealed that the club is set to sit down with Kelechi Iheanacho regarding the extension of his contract.
Iheanacho has only one year left on his contract with Leicester City, which puts his future in doubt.
The 2013 FIFA U17 World Cup Golden Ball winner has been linked with possible moves to Everton and Nottingham Forest, as well as Saudi Pro League clubs, in this transfer window.
The 26-year-old, despite struggling to nail a berth in the Foxes’ starting XI since his arrival in 2017, has established himself as a fan favorite.
Last season, he was crowned Player of the Year after registering 8 goals and five assists across all competitions.
He has also started this season in decent form, registering two goal contributions in 3 games.
Maresca has disclosed that the club wants to keep the Super Eagles striker but the decision to extend his contract lies with him
In quotes relayed by Foxes of Leicester, the Italian tactician said: “This is one of the things that is on the table. It’s one of the things we need to discuss with the player.
“Most of the time we think about the club but we need to see the desire of the player… player, club, and manager. It’s one of the things we need to do soon to clarify the situation”.
The former Manchester City forward has posted 56 goals and 34 assists in 209 appearances across all competitions for the one-time Premier League champions.
