Nigerian winger, Ahmed Musa who plays his club football in Europe with CSKA Moscow has been in the transfer news lately, with links to the English Premier League (EPL).

At the weekend, the reports became even more real when CSKA Moscow coach, Leonid Slutsky, confirmed that Musa would be leaving the Russian side on Tuesday.

EPL sides, Leicester and West Ham appear to be in front of the race to sign the pacey Nigerian.

While it seems more likely that Musa will end up at Leicester, West Ham are putting up a serious fight for his signature.

Musa who has been at CSKA since 2012 had his best season in the last Russian Premier League outings which saw him score 13 goals in 29 outings.

Leicester have already confirmed the signing of French midfielder, Nampalys Mendy while they battle to keep fellow French midfielder, N’golo Kante, who many top European teams are interested in.

They’ve also signed striker Raul Uche Rubio, centre-back Luis Hernandez and goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler.
