Kelechi Iheanacho is not the right man to replace Jamie Vardy at Leicester City, according to former Liverpool striker Emile Heskey.
Iheanacho has struggled to make much impact at the King Power Stadium since his big money move from Manchester City in 2017.
The 23-year-old has scored a paltry nine goals in 81 league appearances for the Foxes.
Vardy on the other hand has scored more than 120 goals for Leicester City since linking up with the club in 2012.
At 34, the Englishman is nearing the end of his career, and Heskey believes the former Premier League champions will have to look for a replacement for the prolific forward outside the club.
“When Vardy doesn’t play you see a difference in the way they play and effectiveness of them going forward,” Heskey told Premier League Productions.
“They haven’t quite found someone who could actually fill that gap and this is what they are going to be looking at. Can Iheanacho be that next player? I can’t see it so they have to go and get someone else.
“I don’t know if there are any youth players that can actually take up that mantle now and play them in certain games so they have to go and look out for a new Jamie Vardy”.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
