Southampton are amongst a host of clubs who are monitoring Ahmed Musa’s situation, with the Daily Mail reporting that West Bromwich Albion are yet to agree a deal for the forward.
Musa has been linked with the Baggies for some time now. He is a free agent. And the Daily Mail reports that he has trained with Sam Allardyce’s side and undergone medical tests.
However, a move to the Hawthorns appears to be in a little doubt. According to the Daily Mail, the club’s owners are struggling to find the funds to sign the 28-year-old.
It is suggested that Kamil Grosicki could make a difference should he leave in the near future. But a number of rival clubs are now tracking Musa’s situation.
The Daily Mail reports that the Saints, Brighton and Burnley are other options for Musa. CSKA Moscow are also reportedly interested.
It is suggested that the other clubs are either ready to make an offer or willing to invite him in for training.
Not only would it be a big blow for Allardyce to miss out on Musa, but he could potentially lose him to one of the sides just above the bottom three.
The situation is already bleak for West Brom. So seeing Musa join either Burnley or Brighton would be a huge blow given that they are two of the three teams immediately above the drop zone.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side meanwhile, have dealt with a number of injuries so far this season. So they may welcome the chance to bolster their ranks further as they look to end a run of five straight defeats.
