Ahmed Musa is the subject of a season-on loan negotiation between Leicester City and championship club, Hull City according to reports in England.
Musa, 24, has endured a difficult time at the King Power Stadium since his club record move from CSKA Moscow – before Slimani showed up.
Back in June, we reported that the appointment of Leonid Slutsky as Manager of the Tigers could provide an escape for the Nigerian International.
Three months ago the club announced the appointment of the former Russia and CSKA Moscow Manager as replacement for the departed Marco Silva.
On Thursday, Sky Sports confirmed “Hull are in talks to sign Leicester City forward, Ahmed Musa on a season-long loan.”
Musa has not made any appearance for Leicester in the PL this season, but has featured in the EFL Cup and also scored.
The 24-year-old has struggled to impress since his £16million move to Leicester last summer, and has scored just five goals in 33 appearances.
Musa did find the net in the Carabao Cup victory at Sheffield United, but had endured a torrid first-half performance at Bramall Lane.
Slutsky had hinted earlier in the window that a loan move was “possible” for the player.
The player is currently with the Super Eagles in Uyo, preparing for the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Cameroon.
