The Nigerian has burst onto the scene at the Etihad this term; helping Manchester City secure that all important final Champions League place, scooping Shoot’s award as the club’s most impressive performer for May.

The 19-year-old has been City’s shining light this month, after several disappointing performances from the team put their top four hopes at risk.

Iheanacho made it eight goals for the season, as he netted three times in three games. Firstly, he grabbed a brace away at in form Southampton in a 4-2 defeat.

The young striker ended the season on a high by scoring the all important goal away at Swansea on the final day to ensure Champions League football in a 1-1 draw at the Liberty Stadium.

We await to see what happens at Manchester City when Pep Guardiola takes over next season, but one thing for certain is that they have a future star in Iheanacho.
