Grading Leicester City's summer signings - Kelechi Iheanacho

Kelechi Iheanacho of Leicester in action during the Premier League match between Arsenal and Leicester City at Emirates Stadium on August 11, 2017 in London, England.

Kelechi Iheanacho was a sharpshooter at Manchester City but has yet to notch for Leicester City in the Premier League.

According to The Guardian, Premier League clubs spent over £1.4bn on new signings in the last summer transfer window.

HITC are using the international break to analyse who has been worth every penny, and who has been a waste of money.

Here we take a closer look at Leicester City’s marquee capture Kelechi Iheanacho.

The Nigerian forward cost £25 from striker-rich Manchester City, according to BBC Sport.

That appeared to be a good bit of business by Leicester, with the fledgling 21-year-old already recognised as a deadly finisher - his 14 goals for City came at an average of one every 104 minutes.

Leicester are yet to reap the rewards of their investment. Although his season has been hit by injury, Iheanacho’s only goal for the Foxes so far came in the Carabao Cup victory over Leeds United.

Iheanacho has been limited to only a couple of Premier League starts and six further appearances off the bench.

While he developed a reputation as a super-sub at City, it would be unfair to expect the youngster to produce the same at a new club where a striker of any age would need a run in the team to find form.

It is too early to label Iheanacho a failure at the King Power Stadium, but it is difficult to see when his opportunity will come with new manager Claude Puel traditionally favouring a one-up-top formation.

Jamie Vardy is undroppable considering the way that Leicester play on the counter-attack, and Iheanacho does not seem suited to filling the No.10 role that Shinji Okazaki did against Stoke City last time out.

Iheanacho has the tools to have a great career, but this spell at Leicester might not work out for him.
