Huddersfield eyeing Musa and Plattenhardt moves
Huddersfield boss David Wagner is eyeing up a double swoop for Leicester’s Ahmed Musa and Germany’s Marvin Plattenhardt.
Musa is in demand following his goals for Nigeria at the World Cup and Leicester are ready to cash in on the striker, who netted just five times in his 18 months at the King Power Stadium.
Musa, 25, spent the second half of last season on loan back at his old club CSKA Moscow and Wagner feels the African, who cost Leicester £16.6million in 2016, could boost Huddersfield’s flagging firepower.
Fulham are also interested in Musa, who has two years left on his Foxes contract.
Wagner also wants a new left-back and is targeting Plattenhardt of Hertha Berlin after a move for compatriot Erik Durm hit the buffers.
Plattenhardt, who is also being tracked by Everton and Bournemouth, started Germany’s opening defeat to Mexico in place of the ill Jonas Hector before Joachim Loew’s side embarrassingly crashed out in the group stage.
Wagner knows Huddersfield need strengthening after they were nearly relegated last season and has already signed Juninho Bacuna, Ramadan Sobhi,
Terence Kongolo and Ben Hamer for a combined £25million.
