Leicester Revives Interest in Ahmed Musa


Leicester City has revived interest in Super Eagles attacker Ahmed Musa, according to UK’s Daily Mail.

The newly-crowned Premier League champions were keen on signing Musa back in the January transfer window, but felt that CSKA Moscow’s asking price of £20million was too high.

With the league championship safely secured – and the prospect of Champions League football looming large – Leicester are already looking at targets to boost their squad.

Manager Claudio Ranieri is said to rate Musa highly, with the Nigerian’s versatility and goal-scoring prowess two attributes that make him sought after.

The Foxes have sent scouts to watch Musa playing for CSKA in recent times and to keep up with his performances in the Russian Premier League.

Musa, 23, has scored 11 goals in 26 appearances for CSKA, who have a two-point lead at the top of the log with four rounds of fixtures remaining.
