Yunus Musah is desired by Liverpool, and the Valencia star has been compared to Declan Rice, Bukayo Saka, and Emile Smith Rowe.
Prior to the summer 2023 transfer season, the Reds are searching the world for new midfield signings.
Of course, Jude Bellingham is the top target, but with so many midfielders expected to go, Liverpool may possibly have other options in mind.
In order for Liverpool to replace Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner, and Arthur Melo, two or perhaps three midfielders may need to be signed.
LIVERPOOL WANT YUNUS MUSAH
Yunus Musah, a midfielder for Valencia, is one name on the list.
Prior to making a move for the American international, 90Min reports that Liverpool has gotten in touch with Musah’s representation.
Additionally, Chelsea has reached out, and Musa’s former team, Arsenal, is keeping an eye on things.
Valencia wants to maintain Musah, but after performing well at the World Cup, a move to the Premier League may be quite alluring.
Musah, 20, has distinguished himself for the USA in Qatar, and Liverpool is interested in bringing him to Anfield.
Although Musah may not be well known to all Liverpool supporters, he does have some history in English football.
Musah spent seven years with Arsenal before departing to join Valencia in 2019.
Musah has grown into a solid midfielder and is now a first-team player in Spain. He could soon be ready to play in the Premier League.
Certainly, Trevor Bumstead, Musah’s former coach, thinks highly of him.
Last year, Bumstead discussed the ascent of Musah in an interview with First Time Finish.
Bumstead, a former youth coach at West Ham United and Arsenal, lavished admiration on the child.
Musah is “on the same level,” he said, having collaborated with people like Declan Rice, Bukayo Saka, and Emile Smith Rowe.
Musah’s physical attributes were praised by Bumstead, who also noted that Musah would be difficult for coaches to remove from the field.
It’s never easy to anticipate who will play football for the first team, according to Bumstead. “I would consider Musah to be on the same level as those. I’ve worked with Declan Rice, Bukayo Saka, and Emile Smith Rowe.”
“At age 16, his physical statistics are comparable to those of our first-team players. The trainers hauled him from the field. He exhibited consistent behavior, which caused him to exhibit consistent performance. He acknowledged both his advantages and disadvantages.
Liverpool had recently been said to be interested in Rice and Saka, but they could now sign Musah for a fraction of what they would demand.
The Reds are really excited about Musah’s potential since they would want to see him reach levels comparable to Rice and Saka in the future.
