Ahmed Musa is set to complete a £16.6m move to English champions Leicester City having rejected offers from Everton, West Ham United and Southampton.
The Nigerian starred for CSKA Moscow last season and helped them win their 13th Russian Premier League title, dusting off challenge from FC Rostov.
The 23-year-old who boasts of 54 goals in 168 appearances for the Red-blues since his move from Kano Pillars in 2012 is expected to be the Foxes record signing. There, he will feature for Claudio Ranieri’s men in their quest for a good outing in next season’s Champions League.
“Everything has been finalised and Musa will be in England for his medical on Wednesday,” Musa’s agent Tony Harris told BBC Sport.
Earlier, CSKA Moscow boss Leonid Slutsky confirmed that the Super Eagles’ vice-captain is on his way out to the King Power Stadium.
“He’ll be leaving on Tuesday,” Slutsky told the Russian media.
“If you look at the way things are done over there, you’ll see he is a player just made for English football.”
