Report: Ahmed Musa desperate for Premier League move, Leicester prepare enormous bid

Nigeria Flag

Ahmed Musa is reportedly desperate to make a move to the Premier League.

According to the Daily Mirror, Leicester City will make another move for CSKA Moscow forward Ahmed Musa, with a £23m bid being prepared.

The Foxes chose not to make any big-name signing in January, with youngsters Daniel Amartey and Demarai Gray arriving from Copenhagen and Birmingham City respectively.

Manager Claudio Ranieri will be looking for new additions in the summer, especially if they land Champions League qualification - which looks like a certainty after Saturday's 3-1 win over Manchester City, which left them five points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

With offers expected for star man Riyad Mahrez, the Foxes may look for more attacking firepower, and Ahmed Musa appears to be the main target.

The Daily Mirror report that Leicester had two bids rejected for Musa in January, totalling £15m and £18.7m, with CSKA Moscow unwilling to sell their most dangerous player.

Now though, it's stated that Leicester are readying a £23m bid to sign Musa in the summer, with the player allegedly desperate to join a Premier League club at the end of the season.

Musa, 23, is known for his blistering pace, and has hit 46 goals in 153 games for CSKA, with the Nigerian speedster terrorising defences in Russia.

A move to the Premier League would be great for Musa's career, and playing for a team like Leicester, who are so dependent on speed, could be a great fit.

Would Musa be a good signing for Leicester City?
