20-year-old who Arsenal let go now ranked as one of the best prospects in world football
Arsenal’s recruitment in recent years has been based on bringing in young players with the potential to improve further.
They’ve also been included on Hundred Football’s list, alongside Bukayo Saka.
The trio sit alongside Valencia midfielder Yunus Musah, who is considered one of the best prospects in world football.
Musah left Arsenal back in 2019, turning down a scholarship offer to move to Spain.
He made his first-team debut a year later, and ended up making 17 starts and his international debut in that campaign.
Musah has gone from strength to strength at Valencia, and is now an important player at the Mestalla.
Musah now one of world football’s best prospects
With the Gunners keen to bring in another midfielder right now, Musah could easily fill that role.
Valencia would want more than £20m to let Musah leave, which for a player his age is a reasonable price tag.
Liverpool have been credited with interest in Musah and certainly appreciate the prospect’s talents.
Arsenal are certainly more in tune with offering their young players first-team opportunities.
The record-breaking appearance for Ethan Nwaneri this season shows that if you’re good enough, you’re old enough.
Under a different regime, Musah may have been convinced to stay at The Emirates in 2019.
However, his career choices have certainly paid off, after being one his country’s best players in Qatar this month.
