Sheffield Wednesday are interested in signing Ahmed Musa on a free transfer, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.
Tony Pulis is keen to bolster his side’s attacking options following recent injury setbacks.
Jack Marriott has recently returned to Derby County due to a calf issue, which has left them short of options in attack.

According to Pete O’Rourke, Ahmed Musa is a player of interest to the Owls, with the Nigerian international on the lookout for a new club.
Musa left Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr at the end of last season, after scoring 11 goals and registering 14 assists in 57 games.
He’s played in England before, too, scoring five goals in 33 appearances for Leicester City after joining from CSKA Moscow.
A move to Hillsborough could now be in the pipeline, and here, we take a look at three qualities he could bring to the Owls…
One thing is very evident about Musa – he is very fast.
The 28-year-old may only be five-foot-six, but he possesses a great deal of pace which he displayed during his time at Leicester.
An injection of pace could be exactly what the Owls need in the final third, and he would give Wednesday a different dimension up top.
He is a player who can open up defences and pose a real threat, and that’s down to his speed.
Musa could be a very useful addition for Wednesday given his ability to play anywhere across the front-line.
He was a natural centre-forward at CSKA Moscow, but during his time at Leicester, he played mostly out wide.
Pulis is still figuring out what formation works best for his new group of players, and with a hectic fixture list coming up, his versatility would be key.
Musa is an exciting player who has played at the highest level for both club and country.
He impressed for Nigeria in the World Cup, and he has scored 15 goals in 87 appearances for the Super Eagles.
He has also captained Nigeria on numerous occasions, and would add real experience and leadership to the Owls’ camp.
He’s also played in the Champions League, too, so his experience could be vital.
