Manchester City have slapped a price tag of £25 million on goalkeeper Joe Hart and striker Kelechi Iheanacho, who are both targets of fellow Premier League side West Ham United, according to the Manchester Evening News.
West Ham have always been the number one club in the race for the signature of Nigerian striker Iheanacho and had recently been reported to have made a bid of £20 million for the forward, but City are hoping to make more from the young striker.
Slaven Bilic is looking to strengthen his side in attack after Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho endured injury-hit seasons. However, the £25 million price tag may force the Hammers to look elsewhere and could put Bilic off from pursuing the move.
The Hammers have also shown interest in England goalkeeper Hart, who is out of favour at the Etihad as manager Pep Guardiola looks to sell him. With neither Darren Randolph or Adrian impressing throughout last season, Bilic is looking for a new goalkeeper and it is thought that Hart is the man he desires.
However, the Hammers boss would prefer a loan move for the shot-stopper with an option to buy after the loan spell has ended. But the Manchester Evening News is reporting that City are trying to avoid loaning out star players and instead want to sell them permanently this summer.
The price-tag placed on Hart could also be problematic for Bilic and it is yet to be seen whether he is willing to splash the cash on the goalkeeper when there are other areas of the squad that need strengthening.
