Leicester City Forward Ahmed Musa is in line to become the most expensive Nigerian player in the history of the transfer market after been linked with a move to a Saudi Arabian Club for a staggering £40m fee.
The Nigeria striker was an impressive performer at the World Cup, but appears to have less of a future at the King Power Stadium having spent the second half of last season on loan at CSKA Moscow.
Multiple international outlets are now saying Musa will move to Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr for a fee which would represent fantastic business for the Foxes.
He hit match-winning double against Iceland (the second which earned him a nomination for goal of the tournament), but City would still have a battle to recoup the £16 million they paid CSKA for his services two years ago.
Musa, who has been linked with numerous clubs including Galatasaray, has made just four appearances in total for City since the sacking of Claudio Ranieri in February, 2017.

If the deal gets through, Musa will leap ahead of team mate, kelechi Iheanacho (Left Manchester City to join Leceister City in for around £25million) to become the most expensive Nigerian player ever.
