Newcastle United Eyeing A Move For This Leicester City Want-Away: A Good Move For The Magpies?

Ahmed Musa’s career at Leicester City has taken a new turn and the player is not the preferred choice anymore. The 25-year-old is yet to make a single appearance in the Premier League this season and looking at the current situation it won’t be surprising if he leaves the club in January.

Musa was linked with Hull City back in summer but he decided to focus on his Foxes career and the move got foiled. But the player used to be a close aide of former Hull manager Leonid Slutsky having worked under him at CSKA Moscow.

Slutsky was pretty interested in taking the player to KCOM Stadium on loan but with his spell ending miserably, it is now a debatable decision whether Hull revives their interest or not.

Leicester have been on a roll since Claude Puel took charge and the former Southampton manager has led them to the ninth position in the Premier League. The Foxes had been struggling but some change of strategy and Riyad Mahrez’s reviving form have helped them in grabbing the bragging rights.

Musa is a part of one of the most envious forward lines in the Premier League which also boasts the likes of Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho. With Vardy and Iheanacho in the scene, it would be hard for him to peek into the starting lineup so a move elsewhere would be ideal for him.

Newcastle United have been crying for goals as the Magpies haven’t scored enough goals. Rafa Benitez has prioritised the signing of a fierce goal poacher and Musa ticks all the boxes.

The Nigerian international hasn’t had enough chances under his belt to showcase his worth but he does have the knack to dig up goals on a regular basis. 54 goals in 168 appearances for CSKA Moscow speaks for itself and if he is given the stage he could well be the main man for the Toon.

He can also attack from the wings so he can offer Benitez a vast area with which the gaffer can ponder with. Musa could blend his goal scoring traits with his electrifying spaces and he often pokes into the channels in a bid to exploit space.

Puel has a whole range of forwards so he is unlikely to block his move if Newcastle make a move for him. He would command a much lower fee than other available forwards so the Magpies should go all out for the Foxes forward.
