Everton monitoring Ahmed Musa's situation at Leicester City

Wednesday, 11 October 2017 33comments  |  Jump to last

Everton are thought to be monitoring Nigeria forward Ahmed Musa's situation at Leicester City with a possible loan move for Musa in-case a recall from loan for Henry Onyekuru in January falls through, reports.

A top source of the player told 90MinutesGoal that Musa has decided to move elsewhere once the transfer windows open in January as he is becoming increasingly frustrated with life at the King Power Stadium.

Also the source stated that 24-year-old Musa is aiming at getting his starting position back in the national team which he has lost to Moses Simon who plays for Belgian Pro League club KAA Gent.

The source said, Musa fears losing a place in the 23-man squad Nigeria's coach Gernot Rohr will take to the world Cup party in Russia due to the emergence of young and outstanding talents who are doing well in Europe, one of whom is Henry Onyekuru of Everton who is currently on loan at Anderlecht.

Musa is becoming frustrated with life in East Midlands as he has failed to nail a regular place in Leicester City after his big money (£16 million) move from Russian side CSKA moscow in 2016.

All efforts to form a formidable and fearsome strike partnership between Ahmed Musa and Jamie Vardy have failed; neither could Musa challenge Riyad Mahrez and Marc Albrighton for a place on the flank.

Why?!? He's another Niasse? Preferred the link yesterday with Das Bost. I'm sure another poster can give me his proper name which I've forgotten. He seems like a decent target man who's got a bit more pace then Giroud and has a 1-in-2 record.

This is surely a wind-up. The guy's reportedly only 5'-7" and got arrested in April for allegedly walloping his wife, albeit no further action resulted.

His goals per game ratio is nowt to write home about either for the "Fox in the Box" he can only be given his build and height, unless you take his time in Russia into account, but we all know the limitations of what Russia's previously delivered to us at significant expense.

I can't see this one but Leicester have an abundance of strikers. Whatever Walsh did there, he certainly isn't doing here!

This Musa be a wind-up, no?

Another flop from the Russian league. Must be something in the vodka.

This Musa be a joke, right? Okay, I'll stop.

Yep, he's the one who scored both goals at Goodison to knock us out of the FA Cup last January... He managed an average of 35 mins in each of his 21 Premier League appearances last season.

Can't understand why we're not getting linked with Sandro Wagner from Hoffenheim. He stood out against the RedShite, has a good record in the Bundesliga and is now banging them in for the German national team!!

We'll probably wait until Sporting Lisbon sign him for 㾻 mill he start's banging them in over there then they put a release clause on him for 㿞 mill!!

No to Musa. We should sign Bas Dost from Sporting, and Gerard Deulofeu from Barca; Yes, THAT Gerard Deulofeu – to provide the crosses.
Steve Ferns
10 Posted 12/10/2017 at 00:39:54
Nicholas, have you ever seen Bas Dost play? He's like Jan Koller reincarnated. You remember him, 7 foot tall striker for Czech Republic. Scored lots of headers, but mainly against defenders who weren't used to jumping (like Per Krøldrup). Both Koller and Dost would trip over their own shoe laces if they had to turn.

That's what really set Duncan Ferguson apart. He was a big man who did jump, so was unrivalled in the air, and on the ground, he could spin on a six-pence like he did when he scored 2 against Man Utd.

However, I heard the three of them have started a £100m race, the winner should finish next Tuesday.

Bas Dost is an awful player. An absolute donkey. He makes Straq look like Messi.

Gavin Johnson
11 Posted 12/10/2017 at 00:53:09
Yes, Bas Dost is the fella I was thinking of. I think he'd be a good signing myself. He doesn't seem that slow from his videos and he's 6ft 5" which is only an inch taller than Rom.

Of course there's a lot of strikers I'd sign ahead of him, but are they available in the next window and then would they wanna sign for a mid-table team which is the very best we can hope for, come January?!

Das Bost. Do some people actually watch football? I said funnily enough yesterday what Steve Ferns said: Hes Jan Koller reincarnated. Awful player. As for Musa, words fail me. Leicester reject links – is that what it's come to???

Bas Dost has a huge release clause. Something like 㿞m, so not worth the risk at that price. We might pick up a few decent loan signings with players not content to ride the bench with World Cup spots up for grabs. Post-World Cup will be interesting, as per usual, with the transfer market in overdrive.

Sounds very much like the lad on loan at Anderlecht has more going for him but opinions on TW suggest he was poor against Celtic – albeit, that is only one game. I assume Onyekuru would not be eligible for Everton in the Europa League if we are still in it in January. Whichever, they may be lost to the African Nations Cup for two months every other year is it?
Frank Wade
15 Posted 12/10/2017 at 11:02:57
This is where we are now. Linked with a guy who can't get a game for Leicester City and they are one of the few teams below us in the league. Dearie me. Come into my office, Mr Koeman.
Matthew Williams
16 Posted 12/10/2017 at 16:52:29
Musa... lol, no thanks.

Cenk Tosan... yes please... real quality this lad!

Break the bank time, Moshiri... make a real fucking statement come January, eh?!

Soren Moyer
17 Posted 12/10/2017 at 18:54:49
No to Musa. Bas Dost is a terrible player too.
Ross Norman
18 Posted 12/10/2017 at 19:05:37
Alan, yes we will lose Onyekuru, Gana, Niasse or any other African player to the African Cup of Nations (that's assuming they're picked for their respective nations and their countries have qualified) but it shouldn't matter or cause any major disruption as the tournament will be held during June/July in the 2019 edition.
John Hammond

Dost is slow as fuck too. Actually he'd fit right in!
Will Mabon
20 Posted 12/10/2017 at 20:12:55
Not so long back, the god Koeman was going to attract top quality players as our fantastic project began, propelling us into the big time. Now we're discussing players like these.
Paul Tran
21 Posted 12/10/2017 at 20:21:33
Watched the Netherlands game the other night. Dost came on as sub. I don't like judging players on 40 mins; I have to say he didn't inspire me, especially for the money they're apparently asking for.
Trevor Lynes

We should have insisted on a player exchange instead of just taking the money for Lukaku.
Gavin Johnson
23 Posted 12/10/2017 at 21:05:38
Bas Dost is a 㾻-20m player. Sporting would never get that kind of money on his release clause and I wouldn't advocate paying more than 㿀m for him.

For all his knockers, Dost has a very good goal record and was decent at Wolfsburg. We need a big striker if Koeman is still manager in January.

Who else is available? Giroud?! Well yes, if he'll come and the fee is still around 㿅m. Benteke?! Palace were rumoured to want 㿔m in the summer. Would anyone seriously pay that for Benteke who hasn't scored this season?! Slimani?! He might be worth a shout and would be a lot better than Musa. We should have signed Llorente or even got Vincent Janssen on loan.

Of course, there's better strikers than Dost. I'd still go for Dembele from Celtic who seems a realistic target and a player who is at the age to become something really special.

It's gonna all come down to price and availability and I think we're gonna struggle to bring someone in, in January. That's why I'd sign Dost, a target man with a proven goal scoring record over 3 different leagues, but not if it's going to be silly money.

Nonsense; no doubt drummed up by his agent, who's eager to get this guy moved on from Leicester where he's not starting.

Easy rumour with the link with Walsh.

File under moon landing – never happened.

Michael Kenrick
25 Posted 12/10/2017 at 23:56:32
Trevor (#22) — what are you talking about? We did insist; and we got 'our' player in exchange... for a nominal 㾶M knocked off the Lukaku asking price of 𧴜M.

What a deal!
What a Manager!!
What a Chairman!!!

Jim Knightley

Dost isn't good enough– Rooney up top is better imo. He is too slow and incredibly streaky – he went on a wonderful run in an attacking Wolfsburg side but isn't good enough. Giroud is a much bigger talent.
Alan J Thompson
27 Posted 13/10/2017 at 11:19:01
Ross (#18); Thanks for that, I don't check the dates of these things but seem to remember that they were held in the first couple of months of the calendar year. Cheers.

This shows the actual level of our board's ambition. Get a loan striker in!

We will struggle to get anywhere this season until a top striker is recruited. Don't ask me who, because we are not prepared to pay the going rate.

So mediocrity beckons at best for our future destiny, unless Moshiri puts the business head on that made him his money in the first place and starts kicking arse and a clear out of the deadwood. There's a lot of it, so where do you start?

Koeman & Kenwright would be a start and then attract a top quality striker. We have a number of very good players who just need moulding into a team.

Oliver Brunel
29 Posted 13/10/2017 at 17:30:59
Patrik Schihk, Sampdoria. Would have been superb, very fast, great movement, powerful shot, real classy striker only needs a chance and he slots. Juventus were going to sign him but he failed a medical?!
Paul Birmingham

Can't say I've seen enough of the lad but based on the Clog game v Sweden, and his showing, I am not convinced but 40 mins is not enough to judge.

Based on the Atalanta game, the return leg will be interesting to see how their centre-forward plays. He done us good style that night but we were all over the place and made The Keystone Cops, look good.

Whoever we get, or if we get must be ready to go Day 1.

Here's to a win at Brighton and a turn of form, as the season is hanging on a thread.

Rooney will go down as being free but we didn't get what we wanted for Lukaku either.

I read Kane linked for close to double the Lukaku money earlier today.

Terry Underwood
32 Posted 15/10/2017 at 11:21:57
Seems like any striker will do. Got news for you... NSNO
Charles Brewer

I know nothingt about Musa, but if he is crap and expensive then Cloghead will be right in there.

And Ray, I'm sorry but you are quite wrong about spending. Everton pays so far above "the going rate" (see the useless pair of Klaassen and Sigurdsson), it is beyond belief.
