According to an exclusive update from TEAMtalk, West Ham United have been gifted the chance to sign Leicester City forward Ahmed Musa after the striker snubbed former Hammers boss Slaven Bilic in 2016.
Musa, who has amassed an impressive 87 international caps for his native Nigeria, is currently without a club and looking for potential employers – with West Ham now being offered the chance to land him.
Ex-manager Bilic allegedly made an offer for the forward nearly half a decade ago, but according to the BBC, Musa rejected that chance and opted for Leicester City instead.
Should West Ham sign Ahmed Musa?
Yes, get it done
Now, without a club and yearning for match action, Musa is a free agent on the hunt for a new employer – with the Hammers emerging as potential suitors according to this report from TEAMtalk.
David Moyes’ over reliance on Michail Antonio in the striking position is no secret, especially with Sebastien Haller currently out of form, but GSB could now land Musa as an alternative option from the bench.

However, despite these accolades, Musa has failed to replicate his mid-2010s form for quite a while and, as a result, has been left without a club.
