Iheanacho scored eight goals in all competitions for Manchester City last season. The 6'2" goalscorer has been in England since 2014, when he was spotted at the Taye Academy in Owerri, Nigeria.

* In other transfer news, West Ham are said to be keeping a close eye on Montpellier forward Steve Mounie, who has been attracting attention from several major clubs around Europe following a productive end to his 2016/17 campaign.

Rated at the ?12-15million mark, the 22-year-old hit 14 goals in 34 appearances for La Paillade in Ligue 1 last season and is being watched by a number of clubs including West Bromwich Albion and Watford, say The Mirror.

* West Ham are reported to be in a straight fight with Mexican club Chivas for the signing of J?rgen Damm. Reports from Mexico at the weekend claimed that the Hammers placed a bid worth in the region of ?4million for the Mexican winger.

Said to be the second fastest footballer in the world, behind Real Madrid star Gareth Bale, Damm - who holds dual nationality through a German grandparent - is reported to have held already staged initial talks with representatives of West Ham, although Chivas are hoping to hijack any potential deal.
