Aksam report Galatasaray have stepped up their efforts to sign Leicester City attacker Ahmed Musa, following Nigeria’s elimination from the World Cup.

The Turkish giants are no longer in pole position to sign the player despite reports they had an agreement in principle with the Leicester City player. However, Aksam report the Galatasaray board are still hopeful they can find an agreement with the Premier League club.

It’s claimed Galatasaray are ready to pay €4m to Musa for a season long loan after previous reports the Turkish club are only willing to pay €2.5m for the Nigeria international.

According to Aksam, talks with Leicester City are ongoing but the English club are in no rush to sell the player after his good performances in the World Cup.

It’s been well documented in the Turkish press that Galatasaray manager Fatih Terim is keen to work with Musa as he plans for next season’s Champions League.

Musa is contracted to Leicester City until June 2020.
