- Paul Stewart has suggested the re-signing of Kelechi Iheanacho at Man City
- The Leicester City forward has scored 11 Premier League goals and three in Europa League this season
- Iheanacho was signed to Man City for £25million in 2015 and was sold in 2017 to the King Power outfit
Man City legend Paul Stewart has recommended that the Premier League giants could re-sign Kelechi Iheanacho due to his current form for Leicester City, The Nation reports.
The Nigerian international has been in good form for the Foxes in the past few months scoring nine goals in eight games.
The 24-year-old also won the Player of the Month award for March and has been nominated for the accolade for the month of April.
City signed Iheanacho back in 2015 for £25million but the striker failed to live up to the billing and was sold to Leicester two seasons later.
Iheanacho is now in the form of his life and it all started in the second half of the season, taking his tally to 14 for Brendan Rodgers
The Super Eagles forward was rewarded with a new deal by the Foxes but Stewart insists City can afford to sign him again if they revoke their buy-back clause.
Stewart told Futbol:
“If it was 10 games ago we wouldn’t be talking about whether they regret selling him or not but, I think he’s scored nine goals in his last eight games and he looks like a world-beater again.
“If City want him back, they can go and buy him because they can afford him and can put pressure on Leicester as they’ll just keep going back with more money until they buckle under the pressure, and Iheanacho may force some of that on Leicester.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported Super Eagles forward Kelechi Iheanacho has gotten an awesome artwork from a young Nigerian artist known as Sheddy Art who posted the image on his social media page.
The young man has been getting encomiums from Nigerians for his incredible artwork of the Leicester City superstar.
So far this season in the Premier League, Iheanacho has been in great form for Leicester City as the Foxes keep pushing to finish among the top four this term.
