Leicester City vice-chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha has revealed that if the club are to complete the signing of Kelechi Iheanacho, it will be "soon". 

The Foxes have been strongly linked with the Nigerian international with Pep Guardiola having deemed the forward surplus to requirements. 

Iheanacho, 20, has done exceptionally well in his short period with the Citizens despite playing second fiddle for most of his stay at the Etihad Stadium. 

The City youth graduate, who joined the club from Taye Academy Owerri three years ago following his eye-catching performances at the 2013 U17 World Cup, has scored 21 goals in 64 games for the Sky Blues. 

Gabriel Jesus' arrival in Manchester, though, has pushed Iheanacho further down the pecking order with a move to the Foxes imminent for the Super Eagles forward. 

“Yes, we have interest in him,” Srivaddhanaprabha is reported as saying according to Manchester Evening News.

“But we have to wait for Manchester City’s stance on this, as they are still in their pre-season as well. If it happens, it will be soon.” 

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has agreed to join Paris Saint-Germain from Borussia Dortmund in a deal believed to be worth £61m.

The 27-year-old striker will join the French giants this summer after signing up to £8.75m-per-year wages and a £5m signing-on fee.

A Gabon international, Aubameyang has been linked with Europe's biggest clubs, including Liverpool, Man United and Real Madrid, but the French Cup and French League Cup holders appear to have secured his signing.

 

Aubameyang scored 40 goals in all competitions last season, including the winner in the German Cup final, and clinched the Bundesliga Golden Boot with 31 goals, taking his tally to 120 goals in 189 matches in four seasons in Germany.

 

While PSG have also been keen on Alexis Sanchez, they appear to be behind Manchester City and Chelsea in the queue. Most importantly, though, they are also behind Bayern Munich - where Sanchez may be forced to head if Arsenal flatly refuse to sell to a Premier League rival. 

Former England and Arsenal striker, Ian Wright has urged Nigerian striker, Henry Onyekuru to ignore the critics of his impending move to the London Gunners from Belgian club, KAS Eupen .

Citing his signing with Arsenal in 1991 when he moved to Arsenal in September 1991 for a club record £2.5 million, a transfer deal questioned by many at the club, Ian wright through his twitter handle wants Henry Onyekuru to "silence the critics" with his performance.

Report has it that Arsenal has agreed a £6.8 million move with Eupen with only personal terms remaining for the deal to be firmed up.

Cesc Fabregas is totally focused on helping Chelsea win the Premier League and FA Cup, despite reports in Italy that AC Milan are trying to sign him.

 

The midfielder has just over two years left on his Blues contract and he is settled and happy in London.

 

He is aware of reports linking him with a move away from Stamford Bridge, but he does not want the speculation to distract him as Chelsea try to win the double for the second time.
