Leonid Slutsky, the CSKA Moscow manager, has declared that Leicester City has renewed interest in Ahmed Musa, Nigerian International.

Leicester tried to sign Musa in January and had a bid turned down by CSKA. Appearing on Russian sports channel Match TV, Slutsky said they have returned with a new offer for the Nigeria international, thought to be in the region of £23m.

“The British club offered a bit less than €30m [£22.86m],” UK Guardian quoted Slutsky to have said.

“A few days ago, Musa approached me and asked: ‘When is he [Claudio Ranieri] back from holiday?’ I told him: ‘I am not Ranieri, I do not know’”.

“I do not know for sure [if Leicester have resumed negotiations] because these negotiations are dealt with by management, but I think the probability is very high.”

If the deal pulls through, it will make him Nigeria’s most expensive player, eclipsing the $17 million (about £14 million then) PSG paid Fenerbahçe in 1998 to bring the Nigeria player to Paris.

Leicester surprisingly won the English Premier League title in May, after missing relegation by the whiskers, only a year ago.
