Manchester United are set to battle with Leicester City to secure the signature of Ahmed Musa on transfer deadline day, according to reports.

Musa has been heavily linked with a transfer to Leicester in recent weeks as Claudio Ranieri looks to bolster his attacking line-up at the King Power Stadium.

United have been struggling for goals this season and the Daily Mirror is now reporting that the Red Devils are considering a late swoop for the Nigerian striker, who has scored 10 times in 29 games this season.

The same newspaper report also claims that Leicester have already had a £15m bid rejected for Musa, with his current club CSKA Moscow holding out for a fee of at least £20m.

Musa is said to have a release clause in his CSKA contract of around £22.8m and his club are reportedly keen on keeping him until the summer.
