OPINION

There would have been a time not too long ago that Liverpool fans would have been beside themselves to hear that their club were interested in World Cup winning German forward Thomas Muller, but now, with the 30-year-old’s best days well and truly behind him, Kopites don’t seem too sure about how they would react to snapping him up. Their indecision has been sparked by a report from Christian Falk that Bayern Munich could let Muller leave for the Premier League in the future, and that Liverpool were interested in signing him back in 2017. Nothing ever came of that, obviously, but while there are some fans who still believe that were the Reds to reignite their interest they would be getting a top player, there are others who are less sure. Certainly, you can understand that latter perspective. So far this season, Muller has yet to score in seven appearances in the Bundesliga, and has averaged just 1.1 key pass per hame and a pass success rate of just over 75%, as per Whoscored. That’s really not that great for a player of his ability. After all, there must be a reason why Bayern are wanting rid of him. Chances are, he won’t end up at Anfield, but even if he were to, it may not be the best thing in the world given his recent form.
