Everton coach Ronald Koeman is reportedly ready to spend as much as £20 million on Iheanacho in the summer transfer window.

According to the Sun UK, an Etihad source said: “Everton have shown an interest in Kelechi, who has been frustrated with a lack of game-time this season.

“He is highly-rated here, but has not started a match since January 2 where as I’m sure he would get lots of first-team action elsewhere.

“Pep is looking to bolster his ranks and spend a fair chunk of cash this coming transfer window and the club could be persuaded to sell should the right offer come in.”

Koeman is said to fancy Iheanacho in his attack, as the Nigerian was deadly in front of goal for Manchester City before he became a bit-part player for Pep Guardiola.

Iheanacho has played 19 times this season and has scored 8 goals.
