Cape Town - CSKA Moscow forward Ahmed Musa would jump at the chance to join Premier League champions Leicester if the two clubs can reach an agreement this time around.

The Foxes first opened negotiations with the Russian Premier League side in January, but a move failed to materialise and Musa went on to help Leonid Slutsky's team win the domestic double.

Slutsky recently revealed that the Moscow giants had recently received an offer of around €30 million for the Nigeria international, who scored 18 goals in 44 appearances across all competitions this past season.

Musa said he would welcome a switch to the King Power Stadium after four years in Russia, as talks continue over a potential deal.

"They have been talking since January, but it didn't happen," he told ESPN FC. "Now, I'm just waiting for them to finish. If they agree, why not? I'll be happy to join."
