According to an exclusive from Team Talk, Newcastle, along with West Ham, have been offered former Leicester City forward Ahmed Musa. The 28-year-old is currently a free agent after leaving the Saudi club Al-Nassr late last month.
Musa was a marquee signing for Leicester City in the summer of 2016 after winning the Premier League. The Foxes shelled out £16m to CSKA Moscow for Musa. He was coming off a monster season in Russia in which he bagged 18 goals with 7 assists.
The Nigerian international failed to have an impact at the King Power stadium. By the end of his first season, he was on the fringes playing just 55 minutes in the final three months of the campaign.
He was kept around until January of 2018 before being shipped back to Moscow on loan. He was eventually sold to Al-Nassr that summer and Leicester recouped some of their money.
Musa is versatile and can play striker or on either wing. He also has 87 caps for Nigeria. However, his time with Leicester City was less than convincing. So this is probably an offer Newcastle will not be taking up.
