Palace will try to hijack Iheanacho deal

IheanachoThe Daily Mirror are reporting that Crystal Palace are set to launch a bid to hijack Manchester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho from under the noses of West Ham.
The 20-year-old is widely expected to leave the Etihad Stadium this summer after the emergence of Gabriel Jesus alongside Sergio Aguero and he has remained one of the Hammers top targets since the season closed.
It has now emerged that Palace could be about to change all that, despite not having a manager in place at the present time but rumours suggest that former City boss Pellegrini could soon take the role.
West Ham have been unable to seal a deal with Iheanacho as yet with the price and buyback clause still not agreed between the two clubs. No personal terms have been agreed with the player and it still remains to be seen whether the striker wants a move to London to get regular first team football.

  1. Why has no one commented on this post? Just curious ,only of all the potential transfers we’ve been linked with iheanacho is the most likely to produce the goods for us IMO. AS far as I’m concerned, considering he is young hungry and a quality proven goal scorer in the premier league we should be seriously pushing this deal home and paying the 25 mil city are asking. It seems to me that whenever we are close to doing any serious business the Daves revert back to their roots and haggle themselves out if the race by stalling and penny pinching. Anyone else get this impression?
