The Hammers are looking to bolster their forward line before the start of next season, with Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho having once again endured injury-hit campaigns.

Iheanacho's current contract runs until 2021 and Sky Sports News HQ understands City value him at £20m.

The Nigeria international has featured 28 times for City this season, scoring seven goals.
