Leicester City’s striker Ahmed Musa has decided to make a move to the Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr after two seasons at the King Power Stadium. The 25-year-old Nigerian joined Leicester in the 2016 season, after their heroic season in the Premier League.
However, the forward struggled under the system that was set up at the King Power Stadium. Further, under the leadership of Claude Puel, the forward failed to impress during his game time at the club leading to his exit from the club.

The Nigerian forward will now join Nordin Amrabat, at the Asian club after Amrabat’s move from the Premier League club Watford. Jose Daniel Carreno would be more than pleased to have the World cup scorer in his set-up and alongside Amrabat, the team might just be a force to reckon with.
Musa’s stint at Leicester City:
Musa joined Leicester City for a sum of £16 million, and after his first two seasons at the club, he was loaned to the Russian side CSKA Moscow. After his spell in Russia, the forward has decided that his time in Premier League is over.
In the two seasons that he spent at the club, the Super- Eagles forward had scored four times in the 33 appearances that he made for the club. During his brief stint at the Russian side, Musa was in blistering form in front of goal with six goals in 10 league game.
In the World Cup too, the Nigerian forward scored two goals in three games for the African side with both the goals coming in the crucial encounter against Iceland. However, since the encounter against Iceland Musa failed to score against Argentina as they were knocked out in the group stage of the tournament.
Musa has proved his worth in front of the goal for the second World cup running after impressing in the 2014 World Cup at Brazil, where he scored a brace against Argentina. For Al Nassr, the acquisition would be a massive one as they rebuild for the future.
