Liverpool wants Valencia star Yunus Musah to strengthen their Midfield. Jude Bellingham is of course their top priority but the Reds may also have other targets in mind with so many midfielders likely to leave.
Liverpool wants Yunus Musah to reinforce their aging midfield
It appears that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp desperately wants to reinforce his midfield which is heavily reflected in their Premier League performances so far. The Reds are scouring the globe for midfield additions ahead of the summer 2023 window. One name which is recommended again & again is Valencia midfielder Yunus Musah.
However, 90min reported that Liverpool have made contact with Valencia and the players representatives to register their interest in Musah ahead of the winter transfer window.
Musah ‘on the same level’ as Declan Rice and Bukayo Saka
The Valencia star is described as equal to Declan Rice, Bukayo Saka, and Emile Smith Rowe. The 20-year-old Valencia midfielder is a first-team player in La Liga. He has developed into a quality midfielder. After his outstanding performance in the Qatar World Cup, many clubs want to hire his services. He won possession back 23 times, won 8 tackles, and also won a whopping 18 duels in only 4 appearances.
A man who rates Musah highly is his former coach Trevor Bumstead. He said;
“It’s always difficult predicting who will go on to play first-team football. Having worked with Declan Rice, Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe, I would consider Musah to be on the same level as those three”
Liverpool would certainly love to see Musah hit similar levels to Rice and Saka moving forward, and that potential is ultimately why they’re so keen. The recruitment team at Anfield have seen enough to know that the Valencia midfielder is worth investing in and he would be a great addition to their squad. However, he has a release clause of £86m in his contract – which doesn’t expire until 2026.
Therefore, Valencia are under no pressure to sell him. It is very unlikely that the Reds will spend anywhere near that amount. So it could be difficult to reach an agreement with the La Liga club this winter.
