Kelechi Iheanacho is ignoring the speculation over his future and intends to start next season as a Manchester City player.
Speculation has increased over the striker’s future after he slipped down the pecking order at City following the arrival of Gabriel Jesus in January.
Premier League sides West Brom, West Ham and Leicester have all been linked with moves for the 20-year-old along with Bundesliga sides Hoffenheim and Borussia Dortmund with City reportedly ready to listen to offers of around £20m.
However, Iheanacho told reporters that he expects to be part of City’s preseason tour party for the United States in July.
Asked about the transfer speculation, he said, “I’m not very aware of that. I just keep working with the team and I’m still at Manchester City so I’ll meet up with the boys and kick off the season with Manchester City. I’m happy to stay at Manchester City.”
Iheanacho has seven goals in all competitions this season but has played just 130 minutes in the Premier League since the turn of the year when Gabriel joined the first team squad.
“Manchester City is a big team and we need to go far as a squad, so we need everybody,” Iheanacho added.
“Of course everyone is competing but we compete as a team. The manager can only pick 11 players so everyone is working, doing well and giving 100 percent. So we keep working and see what comes around next season.”
