Tottenham battle Leicester City for Musa

Tottenham

The race for the Premier League title is not limited to England as Tottenham Hotspur expressed their readiness to battle Leicester City for the signature of Super Eagles assistant captain Ahmed Musa from CSKA Moscow of Russia at the end of the season.

Leicester currently leads the EPL table closely followed by Tottenham but both clubs are ready to sign Musa who joined CSKA Moscow from VVV Venlo in Holland in January 2012, and has scored 51 goals with 28 assists in 161 matches.

The 23-year-old striker was a subject of transfer during the January window transfer as CSKA rejected several offers from league leaders, Leicester City.

“CSKA are in talks with two clubs from the English Premier League Leicester City and Tottenham,” a source told Russian newspaper Izvestia.

“For Ahmed it is a priority to transfer to the London team. However, in this situation, not everything will depend on the willingness of the player.

“Naturally, that CSKA want to make money by selling the player for as much money as possible, and at the moment the offer from Leicester City is € 30 million which is higher than Tottenham’s € 25 million.”

Tottenham are expected to increase their bid for striker.

“It is not known whether Spurs will increase their bid. Nevertheless, we can say with full confidence that Ahmed will be in one of the English clubs next season,” the source added.
