Leicester captain Wes Morgan has been impressed with new signing Kelechi Iheanacho in pre-season training.
Iheanacho joined the Foxes in a £25m move from Manchester City earlier this summer after leaving the Etihad in search of regular first-team football.
The 20-year-old striker made an impressive debut for the club in a pre-season friendly against Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday, although he was forced from the field with an injury late in the game.
Iheanacho returned to training on Tuesday after recovering from his knock and Morgan is looking forward to playing alongside the Nigeria international when Leicester take on Arsenal in the opening game of the new Premier League season on Friday, live on Sky Sports.
"He's a very, very good player. He's sharp and quick and he's definitely got an eye for goal," Morgan said.
"We did a round-robin tournament today and he was on my team. He popped up with some great goals from impossible positions, which is refreshing.
"It's good to see someone with that knowhow, someone with a different acuteness that adds something to the team.
"I think he'll come and do a great job for us."
