German Bundesliga club Hoffenheim have emerged as the latest team to be linked with Nigeria Super Eagles star, Kelechi Iheanacho.

Iheanacho has been reduced to a bit part player at City as the Nigerian has slipped further down on the pecking order this season under Pep Guardiola.

On Saturday, Iheanacho could only get a cameo role for Manchester City as he was in action for only two minutes against Southampton at the Saint Mary's; replacing Sergio Aguero in the 88th minute in City's 3-0 win over The Saints

The Daily Mail on Saturday claimed that the Nigerian international could be headed to the German side in the summer as City are expected to splash money on several forwards in the coming months.

Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, Alexis Sanchez and Kylian Mbappe are three strikers Daily mail hints could be approached by the Citizens to add more firepower to their attack which inevitably means Iheanacho will need to move elsewhere for game time.

According to the report, Iheanacho who has scored seven goals in 26 appearances for his club is also wanted by Bayer Leverkusen.

On Saturday, there was also another report that Iheanacho is wanted by fans of another Premier League club, West Brom
