Leicester City’s Ahmed Musa in talks with Galatasaray

The Nigeria international might be on his way to the Turkish Super Lig after struggling for form in the English top-flight

Leicester City forward Ahmed Musa is nearing a move to Galatasaray this summer, according to his agent William D’avila.

The 25-year-old joined the 2015-16 English Premier League champions on a club-record deal from CSKA Moscow in 2016 but has struggled for game time.

In an attempt to revive his 2018 World Cup chances, the former VVV-Venlo star was loaned back to the Russian giants for the second part of the 2017-18 season where he scored seven goals in 16 appearances in all competitions.

However, Musa could, again, be on his way out on a temporary deal as his representative confirmed negotiations with the Lions; one which could lead to a permanent switch.

“Yes, we are in talks with Galatasaray. They are a huge club who’ll play in the Champions League. So why not? The transfer is possible,” D’avila was quoted by Leicester Mercury.

“Musa has offers from other clubs but he’s keen on playing for Galatasaray. We are currently working on a loan deal with an option to buy. He’ll make a decision soon. I think we can say there’s a 50 percent chance of Musa joining the club.”

The pacy forward is currently at the World Cup with Nigeria and was afforded 18 minutes in their 2-0 defeat to Croatia on Saturday.
