Nigeria forward Ahmed Musa is set to join Premier League champions Leicester City this week, according to the player’s agent Tony Harris.
Musa, 23, has scored 54 goals in 168 games for Russian side CSKA Moscow and has also attracted the interest of Premier League clubs Southampton, Everton and West Ham.
However, the striker revealed in May that he would be happy to join Leicester this summer and is now closing on a move for a reported fee of around £16 million.
“Everything has been finalised and Musa will be in England for his medical on Wednesday,” Harris told BBC Sport.
Musa, who has scored 11 times in 58 appearances for the Super Eagles, will cope well with the demands of English football according to CSKA Moscow coach Leonid Slutsky.
“If you look at the way things are done over there you’ll see he is a player just made for English football,” he told Russian media on Sunday.
