And reports on Sunday are now suggesting that a formal offer is forthcoming as West Ham look to pip the likes of Leicester City to the signature of Iheanacho.

The post Iheanacho: West Ham table £20m appeared first on Vanguard News. But the club is anxious that West Ham, who has bid £24 million for the Nigerian will beat them to the signature of the 2013 U-17 World Cup most valuable player. The Hammers are lacking a 15/20 goal striker to feed off the creatives talents of Manuel Lanzini, Michail Antonio and Robert Snodgrass.

It is not yet certain how long Iheanacho is going to remain in Manchester over the transfer talks as handlers of the Super Eagles are expecting him back in camp before Nigeria's next friendly against Togo in the French capital on June 10.

Wood stays undefeated as Dodgers blank Cubs 4-0
RHP Eddie Butler filled in the No. 5 slot in the rotation last week with LHP Brett Anderson out with a lower back strain ... With an outstanding bullpen, if the Dodgers can get three dominant starts in a row, in October, they ill be in great shape.


West Ham are on the lookout for a new striker, given Andy Carroll's ongoing injury problems and seemingly believe that Iheanacho, who was successful with 57% of the take-ons that he attempted in the Premier League this season, is an option worth pursuing.

That face-saving goal from the boots of the 2013 FIFA Under-17 World Cup victor, ensured that the Nigerian senior national team remains unbeaten in all the eight games played under Gernot Rohr's watch.

This is likely to be a summer of considerable change for City.
