CSKA Moscow star reveals he wants Arsenal transfer this summer

Ahmed Musa reveals his childhood ambition to play for Arsenal

Ahmed Musa has revealed that he would be keen on a transfer to Arsenal during the summer transfer window.

Arsenal are expected to be busy during the off-season as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his squad during the summer.

The Nigeria international has been touted as a possible target for Premier League leaders Leicester City in recent weeks.

However, the 23-year-old forward has revealed that it is a childhood dream of his to play for the Gunners.

Speaking to Championat, Musa said: “Interest from clubs? What club? I do not care!

‘But Musa has to play, you know. I cannot sit on the bench. So I will have to go to the Premier League club that will believe in me.

‘I would be happy if I was wanted by Arsenal. I have supported the team since the age of six. Nwankwo Kanu has been my idol since childhood. It will be fantastic to play for Arsenal.’

Musa has scored 11 goals in 30 games for CSKA Moscow so far this season, and has also notched up three assists in all competitions.
