Iheanacho to Lead City's Attack against Arsenal

Kelechi Iheanacho

Former Arsenal goal king Thierry Henry has hailed Leicester City signing of Nigerian forward Kelechi Iheanacho from Manchester City referring to him as an excellent signing.

Iheanacho, who recently joined the Foxes from Manchester City, had his first run out in Leicester shirt in a brief appearance in their friendly match against Bundesliga side, Borussia Monchengladbach, last week. Leicester City have been guilty of relying too heavily on Jamie Vardy at times, and that has often hurt them when their 30-year old hitman has fired a blank.

"It will be interesting to see how he interacts with Jamie Vardy". I thought he was really unselfish for a player making his debut.

"You know when you have good players that there might be interest in them from other clubs but I wouldn't sleep at night if all the scenarios that you [the media] put to me happened". His 12 top-flight goals for City came at an average of one every 107 minutes - the best ratio of any player who has made it into double figures in the Premier League - yet the Nigerian was never going to get an extended run at the Etihad Stadium.

Thierry Henry

"He's sharp and quick and he's definitely got an eye for goal".

"It's good to see someone with that knowhow, someone with a different acuteness that adds something to the team".

Henry, Arsenal's record goalscorer and fifth on the Premier League's all-time chart, has now spoken about Iheanacho, and it's safe to say that he's impressed with what he has seen so far. Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, the vice-chairman, said last month that Leicester are aiming for a top-10 position and "will expand our focus to cup competitions" if the team get off to a good start.
