West Ham United are facing a pivotal summer. Just weeks after winning the UEFA Europa Conference League — the club’s first major European trophy since 1965 — the Hammers are all but certain to lose captain Declan Rice in a record transfer, with the England international poised to join Arsenal.

West Ham could use the funds received for Rice to sign two new midfielders this summer. One of them could be a USMNT star seeking a fresh challenge after three years in Spain.

Musah returning to England?

Yunus Musah, fresh off helping Valencia survive relegation from LaLiga, has emerged in recent days as a transfer target for West Ham. But competition for his services might be stiff, with multiple Premier League sides said to be interested in the 20-year-old.

Musah is a graduate of Arsenal‘s academy and made a career-high 33 appearances last season, notching two assists for Los Che as they secured survival on the final day of the season. While CBS Sports says Valencia turned down a bid for Musah from Chelsea in January, the club is not expected to stand in the United States international’s way this summer.

Musah’s bright future for the Stars and Stripes

Musah has made 25 appearances for the USMNT, despite his tender age. He started all four games the US played at the 2022 FIFA World Cup and showcased his versatility by playing through the middle, on the left, and on the right of midfield.

Musah figures to have a key role in the US national team for years to come, having already gotten a taste of international soccer at its highest level. Signing for West Ham would allow him to experience Europa League football in 2023/24 and continue making progress in his young career.
