Leeds United are “keen” on record-breaking Valencia winger Yunus Musah, according to 90min.com.
The 17-year-old winger was at Arsenal as a youth player before making the move to Spain this summer.
And he’s already broken into the first team there, despite his age.
He’s started eight games in La Liga this season, scoring his first goal against Getafe and becoming the youngest scorer ever for the club.
Arsenal have had scouts on him since he left but Leeds are also said to be “intrigued” by the player.
He’s won two caps for the States but could be tempted into the England fold. Valencia want to tie him down to a new contract which would see his value go up, but they’re in the middle of a cash crisis.
Valencia had to sell players over the summer after a crisis brought on by the Covid-19 outbreak.
They failed to qualify for Europe and had one of the most expensive squads in La Liga.
Leeds have already benefited from that, signing the ultra-classy Rodrigo over the summer for £27m.
Musah is an intriguing prospect. Leeds are investing in a squad for the future and at 17, Musah is already a regular in La Liga.
England want to convince him to switch allegiances and hook up with the Under-21 squad.
That makes him an exciting prospect but it also means he’s not a player who is flying under the radar.
If he signs a new contract he won’t be cheap but he’s a player that really fits the profile of the squad Bielsa is trying to build.
