Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho is wanted by Bundesliga side Hoffenheim.
The young Nigerian is expected to slip down the pecking order this summer as City look to add another striker with the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Kylian Mbappe and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang on their list.
Hoffenheim are pushing for Champions League qualification in the Bundesliga and have impressed under 29-year-old coach Julian Nagelsmann.
City are reluctant to agree a permanent sale for Iheanacho but he is eager to play more games so they will consider a possible loan deal.
Hoffenheim won’t be his only suitors with plenty of interest in England and abroad. Bayer Leverkusen are also keen.
Iheanacho has scored seven goals in 25 appearances this season.
