Kelechi Iheanacho seems to be having the best season in terms of accolades with Leicester City this campaign as three of his goals have been nominated for the Foxes Goal of the Month award for April.
The news comes barely a week after the Nigerian international bagged a second successive nomination for the Premier League Player of the Month for April.
Iheanacho has scored a total of five goals in the period under review.
The former Man City man, who has been linked with a move back to the Etihad in recent weeks, saw his efforts against West Ham United, West Bromwich Albion and Crystal Palace nominated among the nine goals shortlisted for the accolade.
The 24-year-old will contest with his teammates Jammie Vardy, Timothy Castagne, U23 stars Tyrese Shade, Thanawat Suengchitthawon, Cole Dasilva and Leicester City Women’s Natasha Flint for the individual prize.
In April, his goals also ranked him as the second most prolific attacker in Europe’s top five leagues with only his compatriot Simeon Nwankwo having more goals than him during this time.
His volley against Burnley beat off competition from Ayoze Perez, Youri Tielemans, U23 star Kasey McAteer and Leicester City Women’s stars Shannon O’Brien, Esmee De Graaf and Sam Tierney to clinch the award for March.
so far, Iheanacho boasts 18 goals in 36 appearances across all competitions in the 2020-21 campaign.
The striker has been in top form this season after struggling in the past to establish himself in Brendan Rodgers’ squad.
