Leicester City have made a revised bid of around £22million for CSKA Moscow striker Ahmed Musa.
The Premier League champions were rebuffed with an £18m offer for the Nigerian in January but, as reported by Sportsmail, have revived their interest in recent weeks.
CSKA Moscow manager Leonid Slutskiy has confirmed Leicester have made a bid worth around €30m (£22.8m).
The British club offered a bit less than €30m, he told Match TV. ‘Musa came to me a few days ago and asked when he [Ranieri] is back for the holidays and I told him I do not know, I do not know Ranieri.’
Asked whether talks had now re-opened, he added: ‘I do not know for sure. It is the work of our management but I think the probability is high.’
The 23-year-old Musa finished the campaign with 18 goals as CSKA won the Russian Premier League title ahead of FC Rostov.
The Nigeria international joined CSKA in 2012 and has impressed in the last five seasons. He started 30 games in each of the last two campaigns and has been instrumental in the team’s success.
