Liverpool are “keeping an eye” on Bayern Munich superstar Jamal Musiala, according to journalist Christian Falk, but other Premier League clubs are also interested.

The Reds look to have run out of steam this season, even though there is still hope that the title can be won, and new signings will be needed in the summer.

Jurgen Klopp will be long gone by then and a new manager will be in place, and the individual in question will no doubt be eyeing big additions.

Speaking in his Fact Files [via Empire of the Kop] on Fabrizio Romano’s daily briefing, Falk claimed that Musiala is one player who Liverpool are tracking currently, but Manchester City are particularly keen:

“Manchester City are seriously interested in Jamal Musiala. Liverpool and Chelsea are also keeping an eye on the Bayern star. That said, it’s not like Musiala is putting pressure on his employers to leave Munich.

“First talks will be with the management of Bayern Munich. Musiala’s entourage wants to see a plan for the future, not just for himself, but also for the club. Progressing to the semi-final of this year’s Champions League was a good argument for Bayern Munich.

“The talks with Bayern will take place in the summer and they will try everything to keep hold of Musiala. They have to also show him their plans to develop his career; they have to show him it’s possible to have a similar career to Jude Bellingham at Real Madrid whilst staying in Munich.

“They have to show him he can be an international star without leaving the Bundesliga. There will be more money, of course, on offer to sweeten the deal.”

Our thoughts on Liverpool signing Musiala this summer…

It goes without saying that Musiala would be an exceptional signing for Liverpool, considering he is arguably one of the most highly-rated young players in world football.

At just 21, the forward has already made 161 appearances for Bayern, scoring 43 goals and registering 30 assists, as well as netting twice for Germany.

Musiala has the potential to become one of the best footballers on the planet, and his ability to thrive on either flank and centrally makes him a brilliant versatile option, too.

He is arguably at his best on the left-hand side, however, and Liverpool could view him as an upgrade on Luis Diaz, who has been criticised for a lack of end product at times.

In truth, it is easier to envisage City signing Musiala this summer, however, given their wealth, but the Reds should do all they can to bring him to Anfield.
