Free agent striker Ahmed Musa has reportedly been attracting attention from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

According to a report from the Daily Mail, the Nigeria captain was being looked at by the Black Country club, along with West Bromwich Albion and Fulham.

Musa has been a free agent since leaving Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr in November.

He’d been with them since August 2018 after leaving Leicester City.

Musa – who has 87 caps for his country – failed to make an impact at the King Power Stadium, and ended up leaving for a transfer fee of around £14.5 million (Daily Mail).

It is believed Musa feels he has unfinished business in the Premier League, and it is expected the Baggies will land him on a deal until the end of the season.

The report claims Musa has been attracting interest from Wolves, but it seems there will be no swoop from Nuno Espirito Santo, who officially landed Willian Jose from Real Sociedad yesterday.

The Brazilian striker has joined on loan until the end of the season, with the club supposedly having an option to purchase.

No great loss

It is highly unlikely Musa will be making a move to Wolves, but fans can be more than happy with the arrival of Jose.

Even though Musa has some experience of playing in the Premier League, it didn’t work out for him last time and he has been playing in the Saudi league.

Willian Jose has been plying his trade in La Liga which is a much better standard, and the South American, by all accounts, has a style similar to that of Raul Jimenez.

Musa’s blistering pace (Daily Mail, 2016) would have been nice to have, but Wolves already have that in Adama Traore.
