Greek Super League champions PAOK Salonica have expressed a keen interest in signing Super Eagles forward Kelechi Iheanacho. As Iheanacho prepares to leave Leicester City on a free transfer upon the expiration of his contract next month, the 27-year-old has become an attractive target for various clubs.

Iheanacho’s potential availability has sparked interest from several Turkish and Premier League teams. However, PAOK is reportedly desperate to secure the Nigerian striker’s services, according to sources from Greece.

During the 2023/24 season, Iheanacho made 23 league appearances for Leicester City, scoring five goals and providing one assist. His consistent performance, even in a challenging season for the Foxes, has kept him on the radar of numerous clubs looking to bolster their attacking options.
