Leicester continuing pursuit for Man Utd, Southampton target Ahmed Musa

Leicester City will persist with their chase for CSKA Moscow's Ahmed Musa according to reports.

The Foxes have already had three bids for the 23-year-old Nigerian striker turned down by the Russian club but will not let up as the final day of the winter transfer deadline approaches.

Musa is also wanted by Manchester United and Southampton in what could be a busy final day of the mid-season window.

Leicester's biggest offer of £18.7million has been snubbed by CSKA, indicating they will have to go higher if they want tho lure him to King Power Stadium, but there could also be offers from the Red Devils and the Saints.

United are still looking for a quality goalscorer to add to their underperforming attack while Southampton are worried Graziano Pelle could be head home to Italy.

It is believed CSKA would accept £20m for Musa who has been with the Moscow club since 2012.
