Ex-Leicester star Ahmed Musa wanted by West Brom on free transfer to help strikers after Al-Nassr release
AHMED MUSA is reportedly set to answer West Brom's SOS.
The former Leicester striker is wanted to bolster Sam Allardyce's limited attacking options, according to the Daily Mail.
Nigeria skipper Musa is a free agent after leaving Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr.
It is claimed West Brom have requested a UK visa for the 28-year-old, who is expected to travel to the West Midlands on Wednesday.
If all goes to plan then Musa will reportedly sign a short-term contract until the end of the season.
Musa believes he has unfinished business in the Premier League, two-and-a-half years after quitting Leicester for Al Nassr.
The Foxes splashed a then club-record £16.6million fee to lure Musa from CSKA Moscow in 2016 after their shock title win.

But he managed just four goals in his first season before falling down the pecking order and heading back to his former club on loan.
An impressive showing at the 2018 World Cup helped Leicester sell Musa to Al Nassr for £14.5million.
He tore up his contract in November after winning the Saudi Premier League and Saudi Super Cup.
A lack of goals has been a major problem for West Brom, with just 15 in 19 Premier League games.
Allardyce reportedly believes Musa's pace and power could be just the tonic.
The Baggies boss also has Crystal Palace's Christian Benteke and Mbaye Diagne of Galatasaray on his radar.
West Brom host Premier League leaders Manchester City in their next clash on Tuesday before back-to-back games against relegation rivals Fulham and Sheffield United.
