Yet, it wasn’t so much a straight-forward deal for Leicester as they had to fend off interest from West Ham United, Southampton and Everton, according to a recent BBC report.
The speedy forward seemingly had plenty of Premier League options to choose from, but he opted for Leicester and highlighted their family feel as a key reason behind his decision.
“I feel very happy joining Leicester City, for me it’s one of the best clubs and I feel very happy. I joined because it’s one of the best clubs in the Premier League and they are like a family,” he explained to the club's official website.
“I look forward to seeing the fans in the new season and I will do my best to make them happy.”
Aside from the club having a great connection between the players, staff and supporters, the chance to play in the Champions League this coming season will have also been a defining factor.
The Foxes, having won the Premier League, will be a top seed in the Champions League and with the help of a favourable draw they could be a good bet to reach the competition’s knockout rounds.
Musa, 23, will add speed, strength, versatility and above all a geniune goal threat to Leicester’s ranks, having netted an impressive 53 goals in 164 appearances during his time in Russia.
