Musa Faces Leicester’s Exit
10 May 2017 Sport
Ahmed Musa could be on his way out of English Premier League champions, Leicester City less than 12 months after joining the club.
The 24-year-old Super Eagles man joined the Foxes from Russian side, CSKA Moscow for £17 million last July but has failed to hit expected heights at the King Power Stadium.
Signed by Leicester’s former manager, Claudio Ranieri, Musa has struggled for regular first-team action. He has made just seven starts in the Premier League for Leicester City this season and the Daily Mirror is now reporting that the former VVV-Venlo man is edging towards the exit at the King Power.
In total, Musa has managed just four goals in 31 appearances in all competitions for the Foxes.
The Eagles striker also fears he could find himself even further down the pecking order if, as expected, Leicester dip into the transfer market to revamp their strike-force this summer In his last 20 appearances, he has scored only twice — and both of those came in the same game, a 2-1 win at Everton in the FA Cup on January 7 that he began on the bench.
In contrast, Musa’s compatriot, Wilfred Ndidi who arrived at the club in the January has thrived fueling speculations that the former is struggling to settle into life in England.
