HYS: Should Everton swoop for Iheanacho?

According to reports from ESPN, Everton are eyeing Manchester City youngster Kelechi Iheanacho as a possible replacement for Romelu Lukaku.

The Belgium international has been widely tipped to leave Goodison Park this summer, with former club Chelsea frequently linked.

Iheanacho, meanwhile, is clearly a talented striker. He’s just 20 years of age but already boasts twelve goals in the Premier League and has scored five times in eight outings for the Nigerian national team.

But Iheanacho has barely featured for City since Gabriel Jesus arrived in January, casting doubts over his long-term future at the club, and ESPN claim Pep Guardiola’s side would consider offers in excess of ¬£20million – suggesting he’s available for the right price.

Nonetheless, Lukaku will leave vast shoes to fill at Goodison Park should he leave the Toffees this summer. So, Everton fans, does Iheanacho have what it takes to succeed the Belgian battering ram at the tip of attack or should Ronald Koeman focus his transfer attentions elsewhere?
