West Brom will take a look at former Leicester City forward Ahmed Musa this week with a view to signing him on a short-term contract.

The 28-year-old is a free agent after leaving Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr and has been attracting interest from Wolves, Fulham and his former club CSKA Moscow,.

However, the Nigeria captain believes he has ‘unfinished business’ in the Premier League and Sam Allardyce is prepared to give him the opportunity to prove himself.

Ahmed Musa scored just five times in 33 appearances for Leicester between 2016 and 2018

Musa joined Leicester from CSKA for a club record £16.6million in 2016. Yet, despite an impressive start where he scored a spectacular brace in a pre-season game against Barcelona, he drifted out of form. He still managed to star for his country though in the 2018 World Cup and was sold to Al Nassr for £14.5m. 

There he won the Saudi Premier League and Saudi Super Cup but left by mutual consent in November.

Allardyce wants to bolster his attacking options and believes Musa’s pace and power can add another dimension to his struggling side as they look to avoid relegation.

West Brom have requested a UK visa for Musa and he is expected to come in this Wednesday for medical tests. Should all go well, he will sign until the end of the season.

Musa will not be Allardyce’s only forward signing as the club continue to explore targets across Europe.

Crystal Palace’s Christian Benteke and Mbaye Diagne of Galatasaray are some of the names being discussed but West Brom face a hard sell languishing second from bottom of the Premier League.

They also want to add two midfielders, with Leicester’s Hamza Choudhury and Okay Yokuslu of Celta Vigo among their targets.
