Four years after his exit from Arsenal, alleged West Ham target Yunus Musah is making headlines again, with Fabrizio Romano claiming that he could be an ideal replacement for Declan Rice, writes the Hammer News.
The beloved West Ham captain is rumored to depart for Arsenal in a big money move, with reports suggesting that Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is planning talks imminently. With West Ham already said to be lining up potential replacements, Musah, who shone at the World Cup, could be an excellent option.
The US international currently plays for Valencia, who, like West Ham, are fighting to avoid relegation. However, Valencia’s plight is much worse than West Ham’s, as they are just one point and one place above the La Liga bottom three.
During the winter, there were rumors that David Moyes and his scouts were closely monitoring Yunus Musah’s performance at the Qatar World Cup. The 20-year-old US international currently plays for Valencia, a team that, like West Ham, is fighting to avoid relegation. According to Fabrizio Romano there is serious Premier League interest in Musah, and Moyes could consider him as a replacement for Declan Rice in the West Ham midfield.
Romano did not name the clubs involved, but he confirmed that there is a chance Musah could leave Valencia this summer. Although the interest is currently just in the scouting phase, West Ham should keep a close eye on Musah’s situation.
Romano said: “At the moment it’s just scouting and not advanced yet, but Musah has a good chance to move this summer, with interest from the Premier League.”
