Arsenal have had a bid rejected for Yunus Musah by Valencia, who deemed their offer too low for their liking.
According to FC Inter News, Arsenal have seen a bid for former academy star Yunus Musah rejected by La Liga outfit Valencia. The Spanish side may have deemed the offer too low for their liking, especially after the USMNT international had a fantastic World Cup campaign.
If any top club did not know of Yunus Musah, then the USMNT international announced himself loud and clear at the 2022 FIFA World Cup with accomplished performances. His display against England in the group stage oozed quality worthy enough to play for a top-level club.
The former Arsenal academy ace was let go by the Gunners and has since forged a good career at Valencia. His displays in Qatar have formed quite a queue for his signature, with Inter Milan reportedly eager to sign the midfielder in January.
The report states that Inter may not have a chance with the midfielder and claims Arsenal have already seen an offer rejected by Valencia. A contract protects Musah until 2026 with a release clause of €100 million. But Los Che know they will not achieve that kind of figure in the current market.
Arsenal are in the market for a new midfielder, and Musah can play multiple roles as a no.6 or an 8. Mikel Arteta is keen on such a player in January, and with the report talking about an offer, it may appear they are serious about the USMNT international.
They are also hunting for Danilo of Palmeiras, and Musah could be in addition to the Brazilian. There are other names like Youri Tielemans in the mix, but the Belgian will likely arrive on a free transfer in the summer.
Musah is an exceptional talent who recently hinted at being open to rejoining Arsenal in the future. Arteta was impressed by his applications on the pitch and is ready to sanction a move in the immediate future.
Arsenal have the pull to attract top talent like Musah but will have to ward off competition from Premier League rivals. With his massive €100 million release clause, there is less chance of them paying anywhere near the price on his contract, which is the primary reason La Liga outfit Valencia rejected their supposed offer.
