Summer move might be the best career option Ahmed Musa could make after a successful world cup outing in Russia. The 25yr old Leicester city attacker who netted twice for the super eagles in the recent world cup have become subject to a possible departure to premier league club Huddersfield in a deal believed to be in a region of 16 million pounds. Huddersfield boss David Wagner have not hid his desire to sign the player as he prepares for the new season.
Ahmed Musa might have finally cemented his place in the Nigeria team with another brace following his impressive 2014 outing, but his lack of playing time in club side football have actually affected his career at the national team as he have been relegated to the bench despite his immense potentials. It has become imminent that the attacker needs playing time in his club career if he is to ever reach the height expected of him. The 25yr old have proven to be a tenacious attacker who combines pace, technique and brilliance with his second goal against Iceland a reminder of how better he can get.
Ahmed Musa’s potential growth at Leicester looks slim as the club possesses a lot of talented players who play in the same position with him with Jamie Vardy, Slimani, Okazaki and countryman Kelechi Iheanacho all ahead of him in the pecking order but his departure to Huddersfield could be a career step in the positive direction. Huddersfield town plays an attacking style of football which suits the Nigerian attacker.
Ahmed Musa will be 29yrs of age if Nigeria gets to Qatar in 2022 and really need to start improving if he is to be the force that could take the Nigeria team beyond the round of 16. Huddersfield no doubt provides that career opportunity.
