Valencia saw several of their first team players leave the club recently and their lack of activity in the summer transfer window saw them promote some of their academy graduates to their senior team.
Yunus Musah is among them and he made his La Liga debut in September, a year after joining the Spanish side from Arsenal.
The 17-year-old spent seven seasons with the north London club’s academy before leaving the Gunners for Los Ches in 2019.
During his final season at Arsenal, Unai Emery was in charge of the first team. According to Marca, the Spaniard wanted to include the young midfielder in his plans at the English club last season.
At that time, Musah was 16 years of age and was ‘one of the great promises’ of Arsenal’s youth system.
However, the youngster decided to leave the Premier League club for Valencia and his ‘unexpected escape’ from Arsenal ‘hurt’ Emery.
Musah has made four league appearances for Javi Gracia’s side this season.
Emery is currently in charge of Villarreal and his side will face Valencia in the league on Sunday. The two will reunite for the first time after leaving the Emirates club in 2019.
