After seeing a club record bid for Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa turned down by CSKA Moscow, Leicester City have now been told told his asking price.

English Premier League surprise package Leicester City reportedly had a £15m rejected by CSKA Moscow for the 23 year old whose buy out clause is pegged at £22.8m on his current deal set to run out in 2019.

However the Russians are willing to accept a bid of around £19m for the man who has 10 goals in 29 games this season for CSKA Moscow and presently has 56 caps for Nigeria with 11 goals.

Following the loan of Andreij Kramaric to Hoffeinheim in Germany,the foxes are in the market for a forward and Musa quite fits the bill of their type of player due to his pace which suits their style of play.
