Chelsea are one of three Premier League teams who are pursuing Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho, according to Fichajes.net.
The Spanish website reports that manager “Thomas Tuchel is very convinced” by the Nigerian international’s performances this campaign, with the former Manchester City player having racked up 15 in 31 appearances for the Foxes.
However, it is also believed that Iheanacho is being watched by Manchester United and Arsenal, who are considering strengthening their options in attack.
Chelsea’s interest is thought to relate to the fact that both Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham could leave at the end of the season. Erling Haaland is expected to be the Blues’ top target but the fierce competition for the Norwegian’s signature may force them into seeking alternatives.
Iheanacho is unlikely to be the only name being considered by the London club’s recruitment department. Bringing in a striker is said to be a main priority for the summer and a number of other forwards will inevitably be linked with a switch to Stamford Bridge in the coming weeks.
