Nigerian forward Ahmed Musa was said to have turned down a chance to join Turkish Super Lig champions, Istanbul Basaksehir this transfer window.
The former Leicester City attacker is currently on the payroll of Saudi Arabian outfit Al-Nassr until the summer of 2022.
Despite having two more years on his current deal with his present club, the 27-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Najd’s Knight.
Musa while reacting to Basaksehir's interests according to African Football HQ said he rejected the offer because it is not good enough for him.
Reports claim the Turkish outfit wants to add depth to their attack after qualifying for Champions League this season.
They are also looking for a quality competition for Senegal international Demba Ba up front and the Super Eagles captain fits their description.
Musa rose to prominence during his reign at Russian club CSKA Moscow before his club-record move to the King Power Stadium in 2016.
He spent two years with the Foxes but was unable to have a price tag having scored just two goals in 21 league appearances.
Musa won the Saudi League title in his debut season with Al Nassr in 2018.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Nigerian forward Victor Osimhen has emerged as the most expensive player in the recently concluded transfer window.
The 21-year-old joined Italian League giants Napoli from Lille on a five-year deal valued around £73.2 million ($94.9m) last month.
His move to the San Paolo Stadium outfit saw him become Africa's most expensive player and he's already making waves at the club.
