Leicester ready to spend £22m on Nigerian ace Musa

Premier League champions Leicester City are willing to spend £22million to sign CSKA Moscow forward Ahmed Musa, according to reports.

The Foxes have maintained an interest in the Nigerian international since January and made an unsuccessful £17m bid to sign the 23-year-old in the winter transfer window.

CSKA boss Lenid Slutsky recently labelled the possibility of his star striker leaving in the summer as 'high'.

He said: "I don't know for sure because it is up to the management, but the probability of him moving is high."

Leicester have offloaded Andrej Kramaric to Hoffenheim and are now eyeing a quality replacement in the form of Musa who scored 13 league goals for the newly-crowned Russian Premier League champions.
