Crystal Palace Join Race For Iheanacho, Set To Unveil  De Boer As New Manager

Crystal Palace have been linked with Manchester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho, as the young Nigeria international  continues to attract offers from English Premier League clubs and also in Europe, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

The Eagles are set to confirm the appointment Monday of new manager Frank De Boer at a press conference slated to hold at 2pm today (Monday).

The press Conference this afternoon according to the club's official website is for the announcement of the new manager.

The conference will be shown live on the club’s official Facebook channel and full reaction to the appointment will be available on all the club's channels.

The Mirror.co.uk on Monday revealed that the hierarchy at Selhurst Park were ready to back new boss Frank De Boer with a move for Iheanacho  who has fallen down the pecking order at Manchester City behind Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus.‎

City are targeting a number of top-line stars in this summer’s transfer window, but are keen to insert a buy-back option into any deal in order to ensure they do not regret allowing him to leave should he fulfil his potential elsewhere.

Palace are looking to provide cover for Belgian striker Christian Benteke who netted six times in his final ten games last season.

Iheanacho is also attracting interests from Leicester City and West Ham United.
