Having been linked with a move to Championship side Sheffield Wednesday, the 28-year-old – who spent two seasons at Leicester City – has shunned the idea of a switch to Hillsborough, saying: “I don’t know where the story (potential move to Sheffield) is coming from because I don’t pay attention to rumours and gossip.”
After leaving Leicester in 2018, Musa spent two years plying his trade in Saudi Arabia for Al-Nassr.
However, the 87-cap Nigeria international wants a return to the elite, as he remarked: “With due respect to the club (Sheffield Wednesday), I left Saudi Arabia to continue my career at the top level in Europe and that’s the ambition.”
READ WEST HAM VERDICT
The pacey striker endured a difficult time in England with Leicester after his £16m move from CSKA Moscow. His two goals in 21 appearances during his time in the Midlands perhaps enough of a sample size to put off managers across the Premier League, including Moyes.
West Ham would be wise to look beyond the Nigerian amid an extensive list of striking targets.
