Another English Premier League side, Liverpool have entered the race to sign Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa.
Leicester City and Manchester United have previously being linked with the fleet-footed CSKA Moscow forward but the Reds who have had a poor return in front of goal in recent times have now emerged as the latest club scrambling to bring Musa to the EPL.
As reported by Sky Sports, Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp wants to strengthen his attack in the January transfer window and has opened talks with a representative of the Super Eagles striker.
Having rejected the £15m bid from the Foxes, CSKA look set to stand firm on their 19 million pounds valued striker who joined them in 2012 from VVV Venlo
Musa 23, has scored 10 goals in 29 games for his Russian club this season.
