Manchester City coach, Manuel Pellegrini, has hinted that the club will not be signing a new striker before the close of the transfer window as he has faith in the abilities of Nigeria youth international Kelechi Iheanacho.
This summer, The Citizens lost the services of Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic but there’s no need for them to deep into the transfer market for offensive reinforcements as Iheanacho has impressed the Chilean at training and build – up games.
“Kelechi will give us a lot of things during the season,” said Pellegrini toManchester Evening News.
“Someone asked me whether I was going to bring in another striker, but I think with Kun, Bony, Sterling – who can also play that position – and with Kelechi, it is important for young players to get their chance.”
Kelechi Iheanacho was handed his Premier League debut last weekend against Watford, even though he was on the pitch for few minutes.[post_ad]
