Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho, two Nigerian players, are up for grabs in January, and Leicester City is fighting to hang onto them.

Ndidi and Iheanacho’s contracts expire at the end of the current campaign, and if Leicester is unable to sign them to new agreements before then, they may be obliged to let them leave. A number of teams are exploring moves for both Foxes players in January.

With an eye towards a return to the Premier League, the Foxes have had a fantastic start to the 2023–24 season. They have won 13 of their 15 Championship games thus far, lost two, and are now four points ahead of the competition.

Being one of Leicester’s top players, Ndidi has unquestionably been essential to their early success. In 15 appearances in all competitions this season, the midfielder has four assists and three goals to his credit.

With the Foxes this season, Iheanacho has made 17 appearances, scoring six goals and dishing out two assists.

Though there hasn’t been any progress, TEAMtalk claims that Leicester has been trying hard to get new contracts for both Ndidi and Iheanacho.

Ndidi, a wildly popular figure, has been at Leicester since 2017. Nevertheless, the 26-year-old is currently drawing attention from around Europe, with Lyon and Monaco following suit, as well as Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.

Tottenham, Newcastle, Aston Villa, and Brentford are among the Premier League teams that are thinking about making a move for Ndidi in January.

One team expressing a strong interest in Iheanacho is Brentford, who may take Ivan Toney’s position in January, according to TEAMtalk. The striker is also being pursued by West Ham and Crystal Palace.
