According to The Athletic, Leeds United wanted to sign Kelechi Iheanacho on transfer Deadline Day, but they felt the Nigerian was unattainable. The Leicester City striker was a £25m signing for the Foxes back in 2017, and while his form has been slightly patchy over the past 12 months, at the age of just 25, City would probably want to turn a profit on a striker who has proven he can cut the mustard at this level.

Leeds felt that Iheanacho was unattainable, and given the fact that they’d already spent massive money this summer, they were probably right. Factor in that Leicester need all of the help they can get in attacking areas at the moment, and it’s easy to see why the Yorkshire club felt that Brendan Rodgers’ side wouldn’t be too keen to sell the FA Cup-winning centre-forward.

The only defeat from the last seven home games was against Merseyside club Everton via a 2-1 scoreline. The return of 16 points from the final seven league games at the King Power Stadium came on the back of three-match winless run at the same venue at the start of the year.
