Ahmed Musa Joins Saudi Al-Nassr in A Bumper Signing



Nigeria star Ahmed Musa has finalized a move to Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr .

The 25-year-old forward has put pen to paper on a four-year contract, after Al-Nassr paid a fee in the region of £20 million.

He becomes the club’s fifth major summer signing after deals for Nordin Amrabat, Petros, Brad Jones, and Christian Ramos.

Musa was Leicester’s record signing when they signed him from CSKA Moscow for £16.6m in 2016, however, the Nigerian failed to stake a claim in the Premier League, and spent the second-half of last season on loan at CSKA Moscow.

He was not able to secure his place in Claude Puel’s plans, scoring only five goals in 33 appearances with the Foxes.

But Al-Nassr may find themselves with a new version of the player after he impressed at the 2018 World Cup, scoring twice in three matches as Nigeria were eliminated from the group-stages.

Musa has been capped over 70 times by his country, representing the Super Eagles in two World Cups and the 2013 Confederations Cup after winning the 2013 AFCON.

Al-Nassr will hope to get their spending justified by Ahmed Musa, who they hope will help them win the league title for the first time in three years.
