The report states fellow Premier League sides Leeds, Wolves and Everton are also interested.

Arsenal are believed to have continued to watch his progress since he left last year.

And it is understood the player is open to a Premier League return at some point in his career.

Cash-strapped Valencia are thought to be preparing a new contract offer for Musah – which would see his value rocket – but may be forced into selling their highly-rated prodigy if a big-money offer came in.

He was born in New York to Ghanaian parents and grew up in Italy before moving to the English capital aged nine.

Musah made his senior international debut for the USA this month -appearing against Wales and Panama – having starred for England through the age groups.

But as both games were friendlies he is not yet tied to the Stars and Stripes.

As well as the Three Lions, Musah does qualify to represent Ghana and Italy.

And England are in talks to lure the teenager back into their set-up with Under-21s boss Aidy Boothroyd revealing they have been in touch with the wonderkid.

He said: “I spoke to Yunus’s father. I know a few coaches in the senior staff spoke to the family as well. We put our hat into the ring. 

“We are keeping a close eye on things. This is the priority where we are at the minute. 

“But he is a very good player and we have got to do our jobs and keep an eye on him.

“There’s only so many players that can play, I am hopeful we will see him in the Under-21s at some point. 

“I don’t know [if he has made his decision]. I hope he hasn’t because I think if he came here and saw what we are all about that he would really enjoy it.”
