West Bromich Albion are set to sign former Leicester City forward Ahmed Musa on a short term contract till the end of the season.
According to West Brom’s manager Sam Allardyce the Baggies are interested in signing free agent Ahmed Musa in the January transfer window.
West Brom has applied for a UK visa for the two-time world champion and is expected to arrive in the West Midlands this week for a routine medical examination.
With just 15 goals scored in 19 Premier League matches, Allardyce is looking for a forward and is believed to have paid attention to Musa as it would be difficult to sign Christian Benteke from Crystal Palace and Andy Carroll from Newcastle United in this window.
Musa’s physical condition will be assessed and, if the forward is in good condition, he is expected to put pencil on paper in a short term agreement until the end of the 2020-2021 season.
Speaking to reporters at the Monday press conference before the Manchester City meeting, Allardyce responded when asked about Musa: “He is not here yet. He is a person of interest and when he arrives we will let everyone know and make them to know”.
Musa made 33 appearances in all competitions, scoring 5 goals, during an eighteen-month stint with Leicester City before being sold to Al-Nassr after starring in the 2018 World Cup.
