Ahmed Musa’s anonymous record should concern Fulham and Huddersfield

The Nigerian has just two goals for the Foxes.

According to a report from reputable Turkish media outlet Fotomac, Leicester City attacker Ahmed Musa is being linked with a move to either Huddersfield Town or Fulham this summer.

Although Musa stole the headlines during Nigeria’s short-lived World Cup campaign, the winger has very little to show from his time in the Premier League at the King Power Stadium.

Due to the 25-year-old’s anonymous league record with the Foxes, Fulham and Huddersfield supporters alike should be wary of their alleged links with Musa.

The Nigerian international signed for the Midlands club in the summer following their Premier League title-winning campaign, yet has failed to make an impact.

Since joining in July 2016, Musa has made just 21 Premier League appearances, scoring two goals and assisting none.

The Foxes would surely be looking to recoup at least half of that amount – a substantial sum for a player who is still unproven in English football.

However, Musa provided a timely reminder of his skills during Nigeria’s 2-0 win over Iceland, bagging both goals for the Super Eagles in a clinical display.

In an all-action performance, Musa first scored one of the goals of the tournament, expertly controlling a fizzed ball and then thumping the ensuing volley into the roof of the net.

His second was a mazy run, bamboozling the Icelandic defenders with his skill and quick change of direction.

There is no doubt Musa is an incredibly dangerous and skillful attacker, as he has shown on the international stage and in the Russian league.

Yet, a multi-million pound gamble represents a risk too far for Fulham and Huddersfield to take this summer, especially for a player who has yet to establish himself in the Premier League.
