Turkish champions Galatasaray have revamped their interest in Leicester City winger Ahmed Musa.

The Nigerian attacker has just returned from Russia after impressive displays at the World Cup, scoring a brace against Iceland during his second group game.


Istanbul-based outfit Galatasaray have Champions League football to offer Musa after they secured an unprecedented 21st Turkish Super Lig title, and have tabled a loan deal with an option to buy.

The 25-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Russian outfit CSKA Moscow and scored six goals in ten appearances for Kraso-Sinie and helped guide them to second place in the Russian Premier League.

Turkish Football reported that ‘Sari-Kirmiziliar’ are showing signs of concern that Leicester may decide to keep Musa after his noteworthy performances in Russia and his agent William D’avila recently confirmed the rumours that Musa was in talks with Galatasaray.

“We are in talks with Galatasaray, they have made an offer and want Ahmed,” he told Turkish media.

“The transfer is a possibility, Galatasaray are a big club and will compete in the Champions League next season.


“Musa has offers from other clubs but he’s keen on playing for Galatasaray. We are currently working on a loan deal with an option to buy. He’ll make a decision soon. I think we can say there’s a 50% chance of Musa joining the club."
