West Ham, Southampton, and Crystal Palace have all been credited with serious interest in Barcelona forward Munir. The youngster looks surplus to requirements at the Camp Nou, and could be heading for the Premier League this summer.
Mundo Deportivo have reported Valencia will not redeem Munir this summer following his loan spell with the Spanish club. The Spaniard had a difficult spell at the Mestalla due to the instability at the club, although he did pretty well on the pitch.
This has opened the door for West Ham, Southampton, and Crystal Palace, with claims the three English clubs are the ones showing the ‘most interest’. Given Barcelona’s experience with Valencia they would prefer to sell Munir on a permanent deal rather than loan him out again.
This could give West Ham, Southampton, and Crystal Palace an advantage over the other interested clubs, who would prefer to loan the Barcelona player. Ajax and Real Sociedad want to take Munir on loan, and subsequently the financial muscle of the Premier League clubs could be a factor in sealing a permanent switch for the attacker.
