Former Valencia coach Jose Bordalas feels that both midfielder Yunus Musah and wingback Jesus Vazquez have the quality to make a big impact at a top club amid transfer rumours to Inter.

Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport in an interview published in today’s print edition, via FCInterNews, Bordalas gave his appraisal of the two young Valencia players who have been reported to be on the Nerazzurri’s radar.

Inter are reportedly looking at both Musah and Vazquez as possible signings to add quality in both the short and long term.

19-year-old Vazquez was handed his first-team debut for Valencia by Bordalas, and he has already emerged as a player high on the Nerazzurri’s list to strengthen their left flank if Robin Gosens is to leave the club.

Meanwhile, 20-year-old Musah is another player who has continued to grow in a Valencia shirt, and for his part Bordalas thinks very highly of his talents.

“They’re both players with incredibly bright futures ahead of them,” the coach said.

Bordalas called Musah “Powerful, very strong physically and has good individual technique.”

“He’s incredibly versatile,” he noted of the US international.

“I’ve used him in midfield in various positions, but also on the wing and even as a second striker.”

“He’s done well everywhere, and these positional changes have helped cause him to improve in the defensive phase as well.”

“He has a good first touch,” Bordalas said of Musah, “he has a good shot, great acceleration, and is good in one-on-one situations, which combined with his explosiveness makes him a real weapon because he can get in behind the opposition defensive line.”

Moving onto Vazquez, Bordalas said that “His natural position is at leftback, but he’s wide-ranging because he can play in a back three or a back four.”

“And he’s not just a fullback, he can cover the entire left side as a wingback with his athleticism,” the coach noted.

“He wins duels, he’s strong in the tackle, and difficult to get past.”

Bordalas said of Vazquez that “He also had some shortcomings at a defensive level because in the youth team he was too superior to his opponents, but we worked a lot on that and the results were evident.”

He praised the 19-year-old’s “Excellent technique, power, he can get forward very well because he has good judgment when to join the attack, can pass the ball well and isn’t shy when he goes forward.”
