Picture of the 1.85 m (6 ft 1 in) tall Nigerian striker of Leicester City

Born in Imo, Nigeria, he began his footballing journey with Taye Academy in Owerr. His performances for Nigeria in the FIFA U-17 World Cup led to interest in clubs from Europe as the young sensation had an unbelievable tournament winning the Golden Ball, the Silver Shoe, and the U-17 World Cup. Nacho joined Manchester City's academy in January 2014. He made his debut for at under-19 level in the UEFA Youth League match against Schalke 04 and later began to represent the club at both youth and under-21 level. He made his debut for the first team in the 2015/16 season in a 2-0 home win against Watford. The striker scored his first career hat-trick against Aston Villa in the fourth round of the FA Cup in January 2016, and ended his debut season at the club with an impressive 35 appearances and 14 goals in all competitions finishing as the clubs third highest goalscorer, and winning the League Cup in the process. He would maintain his form for his second season at the club with 7 goals in 29 appearances but found regular team football increasingly difficult to find. In search of regular first team football the Nigerian wonderkid would leave Manchester for Leicester City ahead of the 2017/18 season for a reported fee of £25 million. In his first season at the club the striker scored 8 goals and made a total of 28 appearances in all competitions.
