English Premier League side Leicester City has agreed terms with Manchester City to sign Nigerian international striker Kelechi Iheanacho, Sky Sports reported.

Coach Craig Shakespeare will be adding more firepower to his front line with a pacy, talented and young strike to pair with experienced England striker Jamie Vardy.

Leicester signed Algeria's Islam Slimani and Nigeria's Ahmed Musa last season, but neither managed to make a good impression.

The 20-year old seems like surplus for the Citizens who have five other strikers with Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero tipped for starting roles.

Iheanacho scored 12 goals in 46 Premier League games, mostly as a substitute, over the past two seasons.
