Nigeria forward Kelechi Iheanacho is on the radars of Newcastle United as they battle hard to stay in the English top-flight.

Iheanacho has found it increasingly difficult to get regular playing time for Leicester City following his move to the King Power Stadium in the summer.

According to reports from England, the former U-17 World Cup star is touted to be one of the players the Toons are looking out for to beef up their striking force.

Manager Rafael Benitez had shifted his attention to the former Manchester City star with moves for Feyenoord’s Nicolai Jorgensen looking unlikely to pull through.

Newcastle had shown interest in Iheanacho but the Nigerian dumped them for the King Power.

Newcastle crashed out of the FA Cup following their 3-0 defeat by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, and are just one point above the drop.
