German Bundesliga club RB Leipzig are interested in signing Nigeria international Kelechi Iheanacho.
According to German newspaper Bild via Fussballtransfers, RB Leipzig have shortlisted three potential attackers to sign on a loan deal until the end of the season, namely Iheanacho, Liverpool’s Divock Origi and OGC Nice’s Kasper Dolberg.
The Bundesliga side is the parent club of Nigerian duo Ademola Lookman and Noah Ohio, who have been loaned out to Fulham and Vitesse Arnhem respectively.
Iheanacho has been a substitute for Jamie Vardy since his arrival at the King Power Stadium from Manchester City in the summer of 2017.
The 2013 U17 World Cup has featured 107 time for Leicester, out of which he made the starting lineup 50 times and scored on 23 occasions.
The 24-year-old has a contract with Leicester City until the end of the 2021-2022 season.
