Leicester close in on Musa deal

The centre forward has Champions League experience

Leicester City are close to completing the signing of CSKA Moscow striker Ahmed Musa for a club record £15 million.

The Nigeria international is close to passing his medical and the Foxes are expected to officially announce him as their player later today.

Leicester tried to sign the 23-year old back in January, but couldn’t agree terms with the Russian club. However, he is now hopeful that he can link up with his new teammates at next week’s training camp in Austria.

Musa will be Claudio Ranieri’s fourth summer signing for the Premier League champions, after already capturing goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler, defender Luis Hernandez and midfielder Nempalys Mendy.
