Bayern Munich are reportedly interested in signing Bayer Leverkusen starlet Florian Wirtz, who is also thought to be attracting interest from the Premier League.
Wirtz, just 18 years old, has been shining a light on the Bundesliga, scoring three goals this season and providing four assists.
A report by Fichajes previously claimed that Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham and Arsenal were ALL interested in securing the teenager’s services.
Bayern Munich are believed be in the race, despite the fact that they have a reputation for securing the best talent in Germany.
Todo Fichajes report that Bayern Munich are eager to ensure that they don’t miss out on signing Wirtz, having previously been powerless to stop Kai Havertz joining Chelsea.
As a result, Bayern are already looking to position themselves favourably, with there having been a mention of a release clause that’d kick into gear in the summer of 2023.
However, as per the report, that was merely a verbal agreement, with no such clause existing in Wirtz’s contract. This could lead to things getting a bit more expensive.
The figure mentioned in the report is an eye-watering €100m [£85.8m]. It remains to see if Bayern, Chelsea Man City, Tottenham, Arsenal, or Arsenal would be willing and able to pay that amount.
