Arsenal interested in shock Yunus Musah transfer return as Mikel Arteta sends scouts to watch USA World Cup star | The Sun

ARSENAL are interested in re-signing USA's World Cup star Yunus Musah and sent scouts out to Qatar to watch him, according to reports.

The 20-year-old American was allowed to leave the Gunners back in 2019 after seven years at the Hale End academy.

He departed North London to join Valencia where he has begun to impress for the LaLiga outfit.

Central midfielder Musah has scored five goals and provided three assists in 81 appearances for Gennaro Gattuso's side, but it is at the World Cup where he has caught the eye once more.

He was one of USA's best-performing players in Qatar as they drew with Wales and England and beat Iran to reach the last-16.

They were eventually eliminated by Holland in the second round, losing 3-1 to Louis van Gaal's men.

The transfer expert told CBS: "Yunus Musah is also in the list of Premier League clubs.

"Arsenal recently sent their scouts to monitor him, but there are also other Premier League giants well informed on the Valencia midfielder.

"Inter Milan are interested too, but the price tag could be too high for them in January.
