‘Ahmed Musa will cause transfer war in summer’

19 February 2016, 09:36Israel Ojoko

Moscow - CSKA Moscow president, Yevgeny Giner has said striker Ahmed Musa will cause a transfer fight in the summer as he is being targeted by English Premier League club Leicester City and other top sides in Europe.

Giner warned Leicester they face a fresh fight to land the £23million striker this summer.

Claudio Ranieri failed with a club-record £18.7m bid for the Nigeria captain during the January transfer window as he tried to boost his Foxes' shock push for the Premier League title.

The Russian club’s president revealed he blocked the move after a meeting with 23-year-old Musa, and insisted that the player’s release clause must be met before he can let go.

"We talked to Musa and he understood that he needed to finish the season with us because we stand a good chance of becoming champions," he said on Mirror

"Letting him move, for me, I think will be wrong. Football, however, also has its own economy."

“Musa is a strong forward who can cover three positions and I'm sure that in the summer, there will be bigger clubs coming in for him."

CSKA turned down bids of £15million and £18.7m from Leicester in the winter window but the Moscow outfit did not want to sell as they currently sit top of the Russian Premier League table and are preparing for Champions League Round of 16 clashes with Dinamo Kiev later this month.
