The race for the signature of Manchester City Nigerian forward, Kelechi Iheanacho is hotting up as West Ham have improved their offer for the 20-year-old, who is also a target of Leicester City.
According to Skysports, West Ham have improved their initial offer for the striker and it is reportedly close to what Manchester City are demanding aside the issue of the buy back clause.
Manchester City are yet to respond to West Ham offer with manager Pep Guardiola not keen on letting the forward leave unless a replacement is bought as exclusively.
However, Leicester City manager, Craig Shakespeare has, according to various reports, pencilled Iheanacho as his top target in the summer transfer window as the former champions aim to bounce back from the disappointment of last season.
It appears both teams are going to be the front runners for his signature despite the reported interest of Crystal Palace, who are also set to be mulling over a bid for the 20-year-old.
