Everton should consider a move for the Leicester City forward.

New Everton boss Marco Silva has a lot of work to do at Goodison Park this summer, if he is to guide his side back into contention for the European places this season.

One particular area where the Portuguese will want to strengthen is his forward department, and an injection of pace will be crucial to their hopes of enjoying a successful campaign next season.

With this in mind, Everton should consider a move for Leicester ace Ahmed Musa, who is attracting attention from Turkish giants Galatasaray, according to the Leicester Mercury.

The 25-year-old joined the Foxes from CSKA Moscow in the summer of 2016, for a fee believed to be worth in the region of £16.6 million, but he failed to establish himself at the King Power Stadium.

That is not to say that he doesn't have a lot to offer at the highest level still, though, and a move to Everton could be just what he needs to breath fire back into his stuttering career.

Musa possesses blistering pace, and plays with a certain kind of directness that would help the Toffees improve upon the potency of their play in the final third.

The Leicester man can play anywhere along the front-line, and that type of versatility could prove to be vital for Everton this season, in the sense that it would allow Silva to manage with more in-game tactical flexibility.

Whether the Foxes would be willing to sell Musa to a Premier League rival remains to be seen, but the Merseyside outfit should test their resolve nevertheless.
