According to the Leicester Mercury and numerous other media sources, Leicester City have signed CSKA Moscow forward Ahmed Musa for a reported £16.6 million, breaking the club's transfer record, which was just set last week when the club spent £13 million to acquire Nampalys Mendy.

Social media, as expected, exploded though the club has not yet confirmed the signing:

In 43 appearances last season for CSKA, Musa scored 15 goals and recorded 5 assists, bringing a dynamic presence up front with him to Leicester.
