Bookies have slashed odds that Kelechi Iheanacho could join West Ham in the upcoming summer transfer window making the Hammers the overnight favourite’s to sign him.
The 20-year-old is 5/4 with Bookmakers Ladbrokes to make the Hammers his next club, Liverpool 5/1 Everton 11/2, with Southampton 7/1, Stoke are at 8/1 and Spurs at 10/1.
Nigeria international Iheanacho is under contract until 2021 but City are said to be prepared to listen to offers of around £20m, to help finance their spending plans for the summer.
Iheanacho’s opportunities at City have been limited under Pep Guardiola and although he has made 19 appearances for City this season, he has started only five matches. He has scored four goals and made three assists, despite completing only one full game.
The previous campaign, when Manuel Pellegrini was in charge, was more fruitful with Iheanacho scoring 14 goals in 35 games. Iheanacho is said to have become frustrated at City, and could look to move on in the summer. The Nigerian international has slipped down the pecking order with Pep Guardiola’s side since Gabriel Jesus’ arrival in January.
