Leicester City’s striker Kelechi Iheanacho is poised for a potential departure from the King Power Stadium as the 2024 summer transfer window looms, with transfer insider Dean Jones suggesting possible destinations for the Nigerian forward, MySportDab Reports.

With Leicester aiming for a swift return to the Premier League under the stewardship of Enzo Maresca, the club’s future hangs in the balance as they strive to secure promotion in the final stages of the Championship season.

However, Iheanacho’s role in the team has been under scrutiny, casting doubt on his future with the Foxes.

Having anticipated the opportunity to shine in the Championship and stake his claim as one of the league’s top strikers, Iheanacho’s performances have fallen short of expectations.

The 27-year-old, whose contract expires in June, has struggled to make a significant impact, tallying only six goals and three assists in 25 appearances, with limited opportunities in the starting lineup.

With talkSPORT reporting Crystal Palace’s interest in acquiring Iheanacho on a free transfer, speculation about his next destination has intensified.

Transfer insider Dean Jones suggests that Turkey could be the Nigerian’s likely destination, with Trabzonspor expressing interest in securing his services.

Jones believes that it would be in Leicester’s best interest to part ways with Iheanacho, considering his diminishing impact and high wage demands.

Reflecting on Iheanacho’s career trajectory, Jones highlights the stark contrast between the Nigerian’s promising start at Manchester City and his current situation at Leicester.

He emphasizes the need for Leicester to make strategic decisions, particularly amidst their promotion campaign in the Championship.

“It looks like he will leave Leicester, and at the moment, the most likely path for him to take is to Turkey. Trabzonspor are one of the teams for him, and these sorts of options might have to become very real, even though it seems to be early in his career,” Jones commented. “From a Leicester point of view, keeping him doesn’t seem a wise move as he is one of the higher earners in that side, and he has only started ten games in a season when they are going for a Championship promotion.”

As Iheanacho evaluates his options ahead of the summer transfer window, Leicester City faces crucial decisions regarding the composition of their squad and the pursuit of their promotion ambitions.

With potential suitors lining up for the Nigerian striker, his departure could mark the end of an era at the King Power Stadium.
