Yunus Musah has impressed since joining Valencia and in total has played 80 times for the club, scoring five goals and making three assists.
He is predominantly a central midfielder but he can also play in an attacking role and on the right wing. At just 19 years old he already has 19 caps for the USMNT, and the young American is attracting interest from some of Europe’s top clubs.
According to the Mirror the former Arsenal youth team player, ‘has been linked with a move back to his old club after flourishing in LaLiga, while Liverpool and Juventus are also reportedly keeping tabs’.
Valencia is currently in 11th place in La Liga and has not won in their last five games. A player of Musah’s talent should be playing for a club that at least has European football, but must choose his next destination wisely.
Should Yunus Musah move back to Arsenal?
Musah played for Arsenal youth teams for seven years and for their u18s he made 18 appearances scoring five goals with three assists.
The Gunners are still top of the Premier League after their 1-0 victory over Chelsea. We are now 13 games into the season, and it looks like Mikel Arteta’s side could really compete for the title or at least claim a Champions League spot for next season.
Having left Arsenal to gain first-team football at Valencia, Musah may feel that he has unfinished business at the club. It would definitely be an emotional return if he was to be reunited with old teammates like Bukayo Saka and Folarin Balogun.
What about Juventus?
Prior to joining Arsenal’s academy, Musah was at Italian side Giorgione. A move back to northern Italy with Juventus would be fitting.
The Old Lady has been one of the top Italian sides in the last ten years but is currently in 5th place in Serie A. They have had an unexpectedly poor start to the season by their standards and are also out of the Champions League having finished third in Group H behind Benfica and Paris Saint-Germain.
Without being in European football’s premier competition it would be hard for Juve to attract the best players. Also, fellow American Weston McKennie has shown it is not so straightforward to maintain a starting spot on Massimiliano Allegri’s side.
Or would Liverpool be a better option for Yunus Musah?
Some say’ never go back’, so if Arsenal is not on the cards then a move to the Premier League with Liverpool may be a good fit.
Jurgen Klopp’s side has, however, endured a mixed start to the season and they currently lie in eighth place. They had a good win over Tottenham Hotspur in their last match, which has helped wave away questions about Klopp’s future at the club, but the Reds had lost their last two matches prior to the match with Spurs (against Nottingham Forest and Leeds United).
Musah has such great talent, and with the World Cup in Qatar coming up this month the tournament will be a perfect opportunity to impress potential suitors.
