Ahmed Musa is still riding high off his spectacular performance at the just concluded FIFA World Cup in Russia, especially for his contribution in giving Nigeria a fighting change in the group stage of the competition.
The forward joined Leicester City from Russian side CSKA Moscow in 2016 for a club record £16.6 million transfer fee and has since been struggling to fit in at the English side. He eventually returned to CSKA Moscow on loan for the remainder of the 2017–18 season where he bagged 6 goals and 3 assists from only 10 games.
Musa joins Al-Nassr FC who will be hoping to reach greater heights this season after finishing third last season. He’ll likely debut when Al-Nassr faces Al Jazira in the Arab Club Championship.
