Cape Town - Manchester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho looks set to be a part of an end-of-season clear out by manager Pep Guardiola.
After failing to claim any silverware in his first season at the
Etihad, Guardiola is expected to engineer a mass overhaul of his squad
in order to create a team better suited to his tactics, and the Nigeria
international's exit could help fund for a restructure.
German publication Bild reported this week that a number of
Bundesliga club's, including Hoffenheim and Borussia Dortmund, were
reportedly in contact with the player's representative - which further
fueled rumours of an exit.
Other City players out of contract at the end of the season include
Pablo Zabaleta, Yaya Toure, Jesus Navas, Willy Caballero, Bacary Sagna
and Gael Clichy, while Joe Hart, Eliaquim Mangala, Samir Nasri, Wilfried
Bony and Jason Denayer are also set to be sold in a bid to increase the
summer transfer kitty.
The 20-year-old, who scored 21 goals in 20 starts for the Citizens is currently valued at £20million.
