Premier League side West Ham United is the latest club to show interest in Nigeria international Kelechi Iheanacho, who looks set to leave Manchester City at the end of the season.

The 20-year old has been the subject of speculation as his future appears to lies elsewhere after City boss Pep Guardiola failed to include him in their matchday squad whenever the duo of Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus were available.

German Bundesliga sides Hoffenheim and Dortmund are reported to be interested in the Nigerian, with Everton and now West Ham reported to also be interested in the services of the left-footed forward.
