Reports circulated around the world that Liverpool is interested in Bayern Munich winger Leroy Sané as a successor to Mohamed Salah. While the true nature of the interest is unclear, a replacement for the Egyptian winger must be secured and is a hot topic of conversation heading into next summer.
Liverpool’s relationship with the German champions has been active, with former Spanish midfielder Thiago Alcantara moving to Anfield in 2020, while Senegalese international Sadio Mane sought a new home in the Bundesliga during last summer’s transfer window.
Liverpool, who also acquired former Ajax midfielder Ryan Gravenberch from Bayern this summer, are also interested in the club’s German midfielder Jamal Musiala, and coach Jurgen Klopp is also impressed with his ability, according to Sport Bild.
Despite being 20 years old, he has scored 32 goals and 25 assists in 133 games for Germany’s top clubs, and has also scored two goals in 25 games for the national team. He is a regular for both club and national team and is one of the next generation of midfielders.
In the past, he has also played in the academies of Southampton and Chelsea, and has made two appearances for the England U-21 team. Although he chose Germany for the full national team, he has grown up in England from an early age and is accustomed to life in England.
According to Christian Falk, a German journalist, the Stuttgart-born midfielder, who is under contract until 2026, has not begun talks to renew his contract and will have two years remaining on it next summer.
Nevertheless, it must be said that it is highly unlikely that we will be able to acquire him, as he is likely to demand a huge transfer fee with two years left on his contract.
Still, he is a player who can certainly be a mainstay at Anfield, and we cannot hide our excitement at the future if he plays for Liverpool.
