CONCACAF Champions, Tigres Woe Ahmed Musa


CONCACAF Champions League winners Tigres FC are the latest club showing interest in free agent Ahmed Musa.

According to Multimedios Deportes, Tigres are hoping to sign a big player, as they will be participating in February’s Club World Cup organized by FIFA and Musa is the number one candidate.

Tigres have to part with a foreigner to free up a roster spot for the Nigeria captain as they currently have eleven players not born in Mexico on their roster.

Musa has been on the lookout for a new employer after mutually terminating his contract with Saudi Pro League side Al Nassr.

West Brom are mulling over a move for the Golden Boot Soccer Academy product in January after a loan transfer to the Premier League side fell through in the summer transfer window.

Galatasaray and CSKA Moscow have also been mentioned as possible destinations for Musa whose priority is to return to Europe ahead of next year’s FIFA World Cup.

Former Nigeria international Ikechukwu Uche played for Tigres in 2015 and scored on his debut in the CONCACAF Champions League.
