English club Leicester City have rejected a bid of £12m from Saudi Arabian club, Al Nassr for Nigerian striker Ahmed Musa, AOIFootball.com reports.

Musa, 25, joined from CSKA Moscow in July 2016 for a then club-record fee of £16.6m but was limited to a bench role, making just 21 appearances for the Foxes and scoring only twice in the process.

The attacker however starred at the just concluded FIFA World Cup in Russia scoring twice from just three shots on target, with his second strike against Iceland up for the goal of the tournament.

AOIFootball.com scooped that Leicester would want to recoup the majority of the £16m they paid for him in 2016, with Claude Puel not willing to give the player a second chance despite his impressive performance while on loan at CSKA Moscow last January.

Musa, who has since returned to training with the Foxes following an extended World Cup break, spent the second half of last season in Moscow, contributing to 9 goals (6 goals, 3 assists) in just 10 league games and led CSKA Moscow to a top-two finish.

Newspaper reports have also credited Turkish club Galatasaray with an interest in signing the 25-year-old.
