Arsenal keeping keen eye on progress of Valencia ace wanted by Prem trio

Arsenal are monitoring the development of former academy player Yunus Musah, according to a report.

Musah has been in the spotlight recently after becoming a key player for Valencia. The winger is just 17 years old, but has started eight La Liga games so far this season and has one goal to his name.

There has been much attention on Musah on the international stage recently. An England youth international, he recently made his senior debut for the country of his birth, the USA, in a friendly.

However, he still remains eligible to play for England – or Italy or Ghana – until he makes a competitive appearance for the US.

Musah previously spent seven years in Arsenal’s academy, and according to 90min, the Gunners are now considering taking the teenager back.

Since his release in 2019, Musah has gone on to become one of the brightest prospects in La Liga. Reports earlier this month suggested Liverpool, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund were interested in him.

However, 90min present a different list of suitors altogether. They list Arsenal alongside fellow Premier League sides Leeds, Wolves and Everton as those watching.

In fact, Arsenal have never stopped keeping an eye on Musah since letting him go. They know the New York-born attacker still has big potential.

Valencia prepare new contract for Musah

The report adds that Musah may be open to a return to the Premier League in future. However, a new contract with Valencia is currently on the agenda.

Valencia have been in turmoil in recent months, and had to sell some of their best players in the summer. There is a fear that Musah could become the next one, but they are set to offer him new terms in an effort to convince him to stay.

The fact he is getting regular gametime at the Mestalla may help their cause. Should he sign up, his market value will increase – thus making it harder for other clubs to sign him.

Musah’s current deal runs until 2022, so they need to secure his services in the longer-term soon.
