West Ham are considering a £20million bid for Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho.

Boss Slaven Bilic has been short of options up front in a difficult season, with Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho frequently injured.

Iheanacho, 20, has scored seven goals this season, but the Nigerian international has only started one league game since the start of 2017.

And with Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus ahead of him in manager Pep Guardiola’s estimations, Iheanacho may look to move for more first-team opportunities.

Bilic will make promising teenagers Reece Oxford and Domingos Quina available on a season-long loan this summer.

The pair are widely recognised as two of the most promising young footballers in the country.

Oxford burst on to the scene in spectacular fashion last season, playing a key role on his full debut as West Ham defeated Arsenal at the Emirates.

The 18-year-old is viewed as a future West Ham skipper and has also been tipped to captain England.

Quina, 17, played in West Ham’s Europa League qualifiers last summer and has been an unused substitute for Bilic this season and played a part in Portugal’s triumph at the European Under 17 Championship.
