West Brom have decided to reignite their interest in free-agent striker Ahmed Musa, according to All Nigeria Soccer.
The Baggies have been linked with the Nigerian international previously, and are now mulling over a potential late swoop this month.
It is reported that the future of the 28-year-old will be decided in the “coming days” with Burnley and CSKA Moscow also in discussions with his camp.
All Nigeria Soccer claim in their report that discussions have only just begun, with Sam Allardyce eager to sign a striker this month.
Musa has made it known that his priority is a move to the Premier League, something which will put the Albion and Burnley ahead of others in negotiations.
CSKA Moscow have laid a contract on the table for Musa, who could be set for his third spell with the Russian club should he accept that.
Allardyce has made it clearer his striker will come from abroad, with the Baggies recently pulling out of talks with Benfica over Haris Seferovic.
Musa has been without a club since leaving Al Nassr.
The 28-year-old last played for Nigeria in November, captaining them in qualification games for the African Cup of Nations against Sierra Leone twice.
In this calendar season, Musa hasn’t exactly caught the eye – only scoring twice in his 825 minutes of action for club and country.
Musa’s priority is reportedly the Premier League, with it likely that he wants redemption after failing to succeed with Leicester back in 2017.
What better way to do that than helping West Brom survive this season, and for free – this could be a win-win situation for Allardyce.
