According to reports on All Nigeria Soccer, Super Eagles forward, Kelechi Iheanacho could be on his way to join former teammate Mikel Obi in the Turkish league as Besiktas Presidential Candidate Ahmet Nur promised to sign the Leicester City’s striker if he is elected.
According to Fotospor, Iheanacho has been sounded out about joining the Istanbul club following talks between Erdal Torunogullari (who is Ahmet Nur’s ally) and the striker’s representative. It is claimed that the Nigeria international could be joining Besiktas on an initial 18-month loan deal if negotiations are successful.
His first team chances have been limited under managers Craig Shakespeare, Claude Puel and Brendan Rodgers, with only 16 starts in the Premier League from a possible 84 since his transfer from Manchester City in August 2017.
Iheanacho is struggling to gain playing time this season due to the presence of Jamie Vardy and summer signing Ayoze Perez, and a move away from the King Power Stadium when the transfer window reopens in January 2020 would be the sensible thing to do. The 23-year-old’s only appearance for the Foxes this season came against Luton Town in the third round of the League Cup.
Do you think Besiktas is a better place for Iheanach0 or he should stay at Leicester and fight for a place in the starting XI?
