Inter Eyeing USMNT Star Who Had Unlikely Italian Start

Inter are keeping tabs on Yunus Musah, more for the future than for January, as his price tag is sizeable. The youngster is having a starring role with the United States in the World Cup. The Nerazzurri inquired about him with Valencia, which they also asked for Jesus Vazquez, SportMediaset relays.

The versatile midfielder actually already played in Italy. He was born in New York from Ghanaian parents, who transferred first to the Peninsula and then to England when he was a kid, DAZN informs. In 2008, when he was six, he began playing football with Giorgione Calcio, a small amateur team located in Castelfranco Veneto, near Treviso.

He and his family moved to London in 2012. He signed with Arsenal, where he spent seven years before joining Valencia on a free. After starring for England at the youth level, he picked the United States and has accumulated 20 caps already. Los Murcielagos reportedly slapped Musah with a €20M price tag when Inter came asking.

While La Liga’s outfit might let Vazquez leave on loan with option to buy, they are unlikely to grant the same formula for the 19-year-old. He has multiple suitors. The Nerazzurri are looking for a young piece in the role. Roberto Gagliardini has just six months on his contract. Cremonese, Monza, and Sevilla will target him in January, Tuttomercatoweb informs.

Our Take on Inter Tracking Musah

La Beneamata seems intent on renovating their squad with high-upside talents. However, it’s very tough to do on a shoestring. They should definitively seek an upgrade if Gagliardini departs, but chances are he’ll either stay or be replaced by a cheap veteran.
