Chelsea Legend Believes Iheanacho Is Not Good Enough To Step Into Vardy's ShoesFormer Chelsea and Leicester City defender Robert Huth has revealed his disappointment over the Foxes inability to sign a new striker who will serve as quality back-up to Jamie Vardy and equally provide intense competition for Kelechi Iheanacho this season.

According to the retired Germany international who won the Premier League with Chelsea and Leicester, the Foxes have to replace the England international who is no longer in blistering form and it was surprising that Brendan Rodgers couldn't bring a new attacker into the team during the summer transfer window.

He further questioned Iheanacho's readiness to step into Vardy's shoes when the Englishman retires from active football.

"Eventually they are going to have to replace Vardy. I'm a little bit surprised they didn't get in someone to kick him
up the backside, " Huth told BBC Radio 5 Live, according to Leicester Mercury.

"With Iheanacho, he hasn't done it yet, probably doesn't look like he's going to either, so I'm surprised they haven't invested in that."

The Super Eagles striker joined the Foxes from Manchester City in 2017 but has failed to justify his £25m price tag so far.

He is set to return to Rohr's team for the first time after his omission from the manager's AFCON roster in June.
