In the race to sign Valencia midfielder Yunus Musah during the January transfer window, reports claim that Liverpool is ahead of Arsenal and Chelsea
Yunus Musah, a Valencia midfielder, is said to be a target for Liverpool.
The Reds had been linked with a move for the young midfielder, who shone for the United States at the World Cup in Qatar. His tournament performances have fueled speculation that he may leave Valencia.
During the competition, Liverpool was first linked with a deal for Musah. The 20-year-old was a key member of his team before they were knocked out in the last-16 round by the Netherlands.
Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Musah soon.
The Reds are one of three clubs interested in signing the midfielder, according to the Spanish news outlet Fichajes.
Jurgen Klopp is said to be interested in signing Musah to bolster his midfield options. The player is a long-term acquisition who has yet to prove himself at a “big club” like Liverpool, according to the source.
Musah has been linked to two other Premier League clubs. Chelsea and Arsenal are also said to be interested in signing Valencia.
Liverpool, according to the source, are ahead of the two London clubs in the race to sign Musah. Despite this, the child was a member of Arsenal’s youth system before moving to the Premier League.
