Report: Arsenal and Leeds among Premier League clubs monitoring teenager Yunus Musah

Arsenal and Leeds United are two of the Premier League clubs being linked with a move for Valencia’s Yunus Musah.

Aged 17, Musah is a La Liga wonderkid already starting regularly in Valencia’s first-team and he’s attracting suitors from England.

According to 90min, Arsenal want to re-sign their former academy graduate Musah, after he left them back in 2019.

It is claimed that Leeds, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton are also currently monitoring the attacker following his breakthrough season in Spain, with clubs set to continue scouting him before any kind of big move is made.

The report adds that the teenager would be open to making a switch to the Premier League, but he’s currently in no rush.

 

Musah, who was born in New York but lived in London since the age of nine, is a product of the Arsenal academy and looks like one they’ve let slip through the net.

The right-winger has been promoted to the Valencia senior group this season and last month became the club’s youngster ever goalscorer, as he netted in a 2-2 draw against Getage in La Liga.

TBR’s View:

To be a nailed-on starter at a Liga club at the age of 17 is remarkable, which is why it’s no surprise to hear teams from the Premier League linked.

There is set to be a scramble from international teams trying to secure his services, as he’s still eligible for England, Ghana and Italy despite recently making his friendly debut for United States.

He’s a skilful wide player that is direct and quick with his play in the final third, but it makes sense for teams to wait a little longer to see how he develops in Spain as he’ll still be living off the high of making his first-team breakthrough.
