West Ham & Wolves are set to battle it out for the signing of Nigerian striker Kelechi Iheanacho sources have told GIVEMESPORT. This comes after the 27 year old left Leicester City as a free agent in the last few days.

Wolves and Gary O’Neil have wasted no time in getting their transfer business underway. The Midlands club have already confirmed three signings as well as the loan deal for Tommy Doyle from Manchester City becoming a permanent transfer.

The Hammers by contrast have confirmed two summer arrivals so far. Those being the signings of young Brazilian midfielder Luis Guilherme from Palmeiras, as well as experienced goalkeeper Wes Foderingham on a free transfer. With the signing of Max Kilman for a £40 million fee reportedly being all but done, West Ham have shown they are not afraid to fork out large sums. The club are still looking to bring in new players in a number of positions before the transfer window slams shut.

Just days after leaving Leicester City, following the expiration of his £80,000 per week contract, Kelechi Iheanacho could be handed an opportunity for a Premier League return with the Nigerian international firmly on the radar of both the Hammers and Wolves according to GIVEMESPORT.

Sources have told GIVEMESPORT that both West Ham and Wolves would see signing Iheanacho on a free as a great opportunity to bring in fresh competition in their striking departments without having to part with a transfer fee.

The Nigerian international scored six goals in the 23/24 campaign as Leicester won the Championship and sealed their return to the Premier League. According to GIVEMESPORT sources, key figures within both West Ham and Wolves, have begun enquiring about Iheanacho’s situation to find out what he wants from his next move before, over the next few weeks, coming to a decision as to whether or not to offer the 27 year old a contract.

If Iheanacho does head to either the London Stadium or Molineux, he would do so with plenty of top flight experience under his belt. The Nigerian striker has 196 Premier League appearances to his name, scoring 42 goals and registering 25 assists.
