Arsenal’s offer for Yunus Musah was rejected by Valencia, who felt it was too low
FC Inter News reports that Valencia turned down an offer from Arsenal to sign Yunus Musah, a talented player from the Gunners’ youth program. After the USMNT player’s impressive performance at the World Cup, the Spanish club may have felt the offer was too low.
The Gunners’ board is under more scrutiny to make additions to the roster in the wake of the announcement of Gabriel Jesus’ injury. While Musah won’t be able to take Jesus’ position, he will provide Arsenal with more depth.
Some have criticized the Gunners for being undersized in the middle of the field. A serious setback might occur if key players like Thomas Partey or Granit Xhaka get injured. It would be a relief if they were able to get Musah.
About the report:
The former Arsenal youth star was released by the Gunners but has found success at Valencia. Inter Milan is allegedly interested in signing the midfielder in January after seeing his performances in Qatar.
According to the rumour, Valencia has already rejected an offer from Arsenal. Therefore the Gunners may not have a chance at signing the midfielder. Musah is bound by an agreement that prevents him from being sued until 2026 and includes a release clause of €100 million. Los Che is realistic enough to recognize that such a sum is unrealistic in the present market.
Musah is versatile enough to play both the no. 6 and no. 8 positions in the midfield. This is exactly what Arsenal needs. The news of an offer to the USMNT international suggests that Mikel Arteta is serious about signing such a player in January.
They may also be looking for Palmeiras’ Musah, who may be with Danilo. Youri Tielemans isn’t the only player being considered. But a summer free transfer is the most probable scenario for the Belgian.
What’s next for Arsenal?
Musah is a really gifted player. He has shown some willingness to consider a return to Arsenal. Arteta is eager to approve a transfer after being pleased by his efforts on the field.
Arsenal has the allure to snag a star player like Musah. But they’ll have to fight off competition from other Premier League clubs to do it. La Liga club Valencia rejected their claimed offer because of his hefty €100 million release clause. The little likelihood that they would pay anything near the figure on his contract.
