Nigeria World Cup star Ahmed Musa linked with big-money move to Saudi club

Saudi Arabia side Al Nassr are reportedly prepared to splash £40m on Nigeria international Ahmed Musa.

Musa, 25, was strongly linked with a move to Turkish giants Galatasaray last week, but it now seems he would be joining Al Nassr.

The Leicester City winger impressed

during Nigeria’s World Cup campaign, scoring two stunning goals against Iceland in Nigeria’s second game, but he appears to have little future at the King Power Stadium, having spent the second half of last season on loan at CSKA Moscow.

Signed for just £16m in 2016, the Nigerian managed just five goals in 33 games for the Foxes before being loaned back to CSKA in January.

Since the dismissal of Claudio Ranieri — the coach who brought the speedster to the King Power — in February 2017, Musa has made just four appearances in total for City.
