West Ham United in transfer tussle to sign Kelechi Iheanacho

West Ham United are reportedly keen on signing Kelechi Iheanacho in a Bosman move this summer after he left Leicester City as a free agent.

According to a report from Give Me Sport, West Ham United are lining up a Bosman move for 27-year-old Nigerian striker Kelechi Iheanacho, who has recently left newly-promoted Premier League club Leicester City as a free agent.

The 27-year-old has played in the Premier League before with the Foxes and Manchester City. He has the quality to thrive in the English top flight, and he could be a useful player for the Hammers. He was recently linked with Aston Villa as well.

West Ham need to bring in attacking reinforcements this summer, and it is no surprise that they are looking to sign the free agent. The Hammers will have to strengthen the other areas of their squad as well, and the opportunity to sign a player of his quality and experience on a Bosman move cannot be turned down.

Meanwhile, the 27-year-old will look to compete at a high level as well, and the opportunity to move to West Ham will be quite attractive. The East London club have been competing regularly in European football, and they have brought in a quality manager like Julen Lopetegui as well.

West Ham have a quality squad at their disposal, and they could easily challenge for European qualification once again with a couple of quality additions. Improving the attacking unit will be a top priority for them this summer.

West Ham need a quality striker

Danny Ings and Michail Antonio are past their peaks, and they will have to be replaced this summer. Ihaeancho could prove to be a useful squad player for the Hammers. They should look to sign another reliable goalscorer alongside him before the window closes.

Recent reports have also linked West Ham with other strikers, including Alexander Sorloth. Meanwhile, the 27-year-old is versatile enough to operate as a wide forward as well as a centre forward. His versatility will be an added bonus for the London club if they can get the deal done.

Signing him on a free transfer will help them spend their resources in the other areas of the squad. They will need to plug the gaps in their squad this summer if they are serious about completing trophies next year. It will be interesting to see if they can bring in the right additions before the window closes.
