Fenerbache are reported to be chasing Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho in a loan deal on the back of the massive coup of signing Mesut Ozil from Arsenal.

Fenerbache have not yet made a formal bid for Iheanacho, but according to A Spor, the striker is top of their shopping list as they have not been happy with the return of strikers Papiss Cisse and Kemal Ademi.

The Istanbul side have already formalised their signing of Nigerian-born Bright Osayi-Samuel from English Championship side QPR.

Last week, Iheanacho was also linked with move away from ‘The Foxes’.

Leading newspaper Bild reported that the 24-year-old striker was one of several targets for Bundesliga side RB Leipzig.

Leicester City first-choice striker Jamie Vardy has been sidelined after several weeks after undergoing a minor surgery and Iheanacho was expected to stake a claim to lead the attack of the Premier League club.
