Kelechi Iheanacho can strike up lethal partnership with Jamie Vardy, claims Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare


Craig Shakespeare believes Leicester have pulled off a transfer coup by signing Kelechi Iheanacho and insists the 20-year-old can form a productive partnership with Jamie Vardy.

Iheanacho has recovered from a toe injury to be in contention for the Premier League’s curtain-raiser at Arsenal on Friday night and Shakespeare has been impressed in training.

Leicester paid Manchester City £25million for a centre-forward with the best minutes per goal ratio of any Premier League player with more than 10 strikes, and Shakespeare hopes he replicates that form at the King Power Stadium.
