Startling information out of England indicates that former English Premier League champs, Leicester City have taken another giant step in their efforts to keep Ahmed Musa this summer, as The Foxes have now increased their asking price on his transfer to £40m.
In contrast with initial reports that Leicester were angling for £30m to sell off the Super Eagles star, who played on loan at CSKA Moscow of Russia last season, the King Power Stadium outfit have now shot their demands up by another one million pounds.
In what is seen as another desperate and smart move by the club to cash in on the shored up value Musa gained with a spirited return to top form at CSKA and splendid personal outing with the Super Eagles at the World Cup, The Foxes are now set to force any willing suitor to pay through the nose to snatch the fleet-footed attacker-cum-striker.
The report states further that Musa could be set for a big-money move to Saudi Arabia if only Al Nassr can cough out the £40m fee.
Musa produced impressive performances at the World Cup, especially his match-winning double against Iceland, which included a strike nominated for goal of the tournament.
Multiple international news outlets have claimed Musa is in talks over a move to Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr for the eye-watering figure.
However, an independent pundit argued that, while the move to take Musa to Al Nassr could go ahead, the £40m reported fee is an inflated figure, which possibly includes his potential personal terms.
