Nigerian forward, Kelechi Iheanacho, will be part of Manchester City’s squad for its pre-season tour of the United States despite reports linking him away from the club.
As City’s manager, Pep Guardiola plans for a clear-out, Iheanacho is reportedly on the radar of West Ham United, Leicester City and other European clubs.
The Super Eagles forward announced his arrival on the big stage during the club’s pre-season tour three years ago and had been part of the first team squad since then.
The former Nigerian under-21 hero scored 21 goals in 64 appearances for the Citizens but has found playing time under Guardiola difficult to come by last season.
However, his inclusion in Guardiola’s team for the tour of America did not give a clear indication on his future at the Etihad Stadium to mean Pep had had a change of heart.
Those dropped from the squad of pre-season tour include England goalkeeper Joe Hart, Wilfred Bony, Samir Nasri, Eliaquim Mangala and Jason Denayer.
