Leicester City’s Ahmed Musa is reportedly wanted by West Bromwich Albion in the summer transfer window.

West Bromwich Albion are interested in signing Ahmed Musa from Leicester City in the summer transfer window, according to The Mirror.

It has been reported that West Brom want to secure the services of the 24-year-old on a season-long loan deal from Premier League rivals Leicester.

The Baggies are also claimed to want an option to buy Musa, who can operate as a winger or as a forward.

The Nigeria international joined Leicester from CSKA Moscow in the summer of 2016 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £16 million.

Musa failed to make a massive impact at the King Power Stadium last season, as he could make only seven starts in the Premier League and scored just two goals.

West Brom could do with a new attacker ahead of the 2017-18 Premier League season, but Musa’s performances last season, it would be a huge gamble on their part to sign him.

The Baggies will be aiming to finish in the top 10 of the Premier League next season, and so will Leicester.
