According to Sky Sports, the Chelsea striker is their preferred target but he’s tempted to remain in the Premier League amid interest from Arsenal, Aston Villa and West Ham United.

All three of the Foxes’ trips to Wembley Stadium in 2021 have ended in 1-0 wins, with Iheanacho the scorer of a solitary goal in the FA Cup Semi-Final in April, before his spot-kick this weekend secured Leicester’s second Community Shield success.

Iheanacho, who prides himself as Africa’s all-time highest goal sorcerer in the FA Cup, led the celebrations with the Nigerian flag, while his compatriot Ndidi also joined in wrapping the flag around themselves.

Both players made major contributions in Leicester City’s cup run, culminating in the triumphant scenes at Wembley after they edged Chelsea 1-0 to claim a first ever FA Cup title for the club and the duo themselves.

The Foxes will be taking part in their fifth final as they search for their maiden FA Cup crown, while today’s game represents Chelsea’s 15th appearance in the showpiece event as they seek a ninth triumph.

Iheanacho, who is the current holder of the award after he won it in March, continued his imperious form for Leicester City this season as he bagged four goals and provided two assists in April as the Foxes maintain its spot in the top 4.
