Arsenal star warns Premier League defenders about new Leicester City signing

Arsenal star Alex Iwobi has sung the praised of his Nigerian international teammate Ahmed Musa who recently completed a big money move to fellow Premier League outfit Leicester City.

Iwobi revealed that the young striker is well suited for Premier League football due to his pace, dribbling and crossing ability.

“I have played with him and one thing I can tell you for sure is that this guy is fast,” Iwobi was quoted by Punch [via Bleacher Report] as saying on Tuesday.

“I think he can do well in England because he is exactly what you want in a winger, he will go past people and can cross the ball well.”

According to Sun Sport, Leicester City paid the Russian Premier League giants £16 million to bring the 23-year-old striker to King Power Stadium – the highest transfer fee ever paid by the Premier League champions.

The Nigerian international finished the 2015-16 campaign for CSKA Moscow with a career-high 18 goals in all competitions, including 13 in the Russian Premier League – and he lifted the league title.

The young striker also has Champions League experience, having represented the Moscow based outfit in the competition for the past three seasons.

Leicester City won the league title for the first time in the Foxes history last season and will also compete in the Champions League for the first time.
