Report: Leicester City to revive bid to sign Ahmed Musa from CSKA Moscow

The Foxes are set to bring in some new faces this summer ahead of a Champions League campaign.

Leicester City have shocked English football this week as Tottenham Hotspur’s draw with Chelsea on Monday night saw the Foxes secure a first ever Premier League title.

Some may now say that the real work begins.

Leicester will now be taking on the extra load of Champions League football next season and some new players are likely to be heading in at the King Power in order to spread the workload.

One such player might just be Ahmed Musa.

TODAY in Nigeria are reporting that Leicester will be reviving their interest in the player this summer, after failing to secure his signature in the January transfer window.

The report claims that Leicester watched the Nigerian international in action for CSKA Moscow earlier this month to check on his progress and it seems they are hoping to bring him in for a fee in the region of £18 million.

In January Leicester, as reported by the BBC, made an £18.7 million offer for the player that was rejected and would not meet his buyout clause of £22.8 million.

Now it is reported that the two clubs might be able to settle at £18 million to see the Nigeria captain at Leicester City next season.
