Southampton in record breaking £20m bid for Champions League forward

Southampton fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are understandably disappointed after their club flogged another one of their star players to Liverpool after another positive season.

But this news could lift their spirits, because according to OwnGoalNigeria, Saints have made a bid in the region of just over £20m for CSKA Moscow forward Ahmed Musa.

The Nigerian forward has electric pace and had a great season in Russia after scoring 13 league goals, which is three more than the previous campaign.

In their bid for the exciting 23-year-old, the Saints have opted to include add ons which would mean the offer will inevitably rise if it was to be accepted.

If the deal goes through, it would smash the transfer record at St. Mary’s and could partially be funded by Sadio Mane’s move to Liverpool.

Saints are not the only Premier League side interested in CSKA Moscow’s forward, with champions Leicester said to have already made two bids for his services.

Southampton fans. Do you think Ahmed Musa would be a good replacement for the outgoing Sadio Mane? Let us know your thoughts below.
