Sheffield Wednesday have agreed a deal to sign AS Monaco attacker Anthony Musaba, reports The Star.

Musaba, 22, has recently been linked with a move to Sheffield Wednesday from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco, and now The Star reporter Joe Crann says that a deal has been agreed between the two clubs.

Crann adds that Musaba is ‘expected to arrive in the UK imminently’ ahead of his move to Hillsborough, where he looks set to become the Owls’ sixth summer signing.

So far this summer, Reece James, Juan Delgado, Ashley Fletcher, Pol Valentin, and Di’Shon Bernard have all arrived at Hillsborough, with Sheffield Wednesday kicking off their season against Southampton on Friday night.

Born in the Netherlands, Musaba began his career with NEC where his impressive early performances earning him a €2million move to Monaco in 2020.

But Musaba has made just one senior appearances for the club since, spending time out on loan with the likes of Cercle Brugge, Heerenveen, Metz, and NEC.

Much-needed attacking options…

Sheffield Wednesday have managed to bolster most areas of the pitch so far this summer, though it still looks like they’re in need of some strong attacking reinforcements.

And Musaba looks like exactly that – he was a highly-rated prospect in Europe just a few years ago and it’s a shame that his move to Monaco hasn’t really worked out, but Wednesday look set to be gaining a very exciting player.

He’ll add a lot of firepower to the club’s ranks with his previous goal-scoring records to be admired, and as per The Star, it looks like a move is at a very advanced stage right now.

Musaba looks set to become the Owls’ latest summer signing but whether nor not he’ll arrive in time to feature in Friday’s opener remains to be seen.
