Premiership league winner, Leicester City, have renewed interest in signing Super Eagles winger Ahmed Musa after its initial attempt was rebuffed by his current club, CSKA Moscow, in the January window transfer.
Appearing on Russian sports channel Match TV, CSKA’s manager Leonid Slutsky said Leicester had returned with a new offer for the Nigeria international, thought to be in the region of £22m.
“The British club offered a bit less than €30m [£22.86m],” he said. “A few days ago, Musa approached me and asked: ‘When is he [Claudio Ranieri] back from holiday?’ I told him: ‘I am not Ranieri, I do not know.’
“I do not know for sure [if Leicester have resumed negotiations] because these negotiations are dealt with by management, but I think the probability is very high.”
Musa, who is currently on international duty with the Super Eagles scored 18 goals for CSKA as the club won the Russian Premier League title in the just concluded season.
