In reports surfacing out of Germany today, Liverpool Football Club have been linked with an audacious bid for Bayern Munich fan-favourite Thomas Muller. 

Thomas Muller. Not a name I honestly thought would come up this transfer window but it is has done, courtesy of German publication BILD, who are linking the German forward with a move to one of “four top clubs” that includes Liverpool.

The article claims that interest in the Raumdeuter has been present from numerous European powerhouses for years now but was never acted upon due to the knowledge that Bayern would be extremely unwilling to sell.

Now, however, with the arrival of James Rodrigues on a two-year loan deal from Real Madrid, it is claimed that the Munich-based giants would be more willing to listen should an offer come in for Muller’s services.

Jürgen Klopp is said to have “emphasised internally” his desire to sign the player should he become available and the German manager may pay close attention when the Reds travel to Munich for the Audi Cup – of which Bayern are also a part – in early August.

At 27 years of age, Muller’s list of achievements is certainly impressive on all of a personal, club and national team level.

The forward has been a part of a World Cup winning German side, boasts domestic honours and a Champions League with Bayern Munich and is also tipped to break countryman Miroslav Klose’s record of 16 World Cup goals having already scored 10 in his first two tournaments.

Muller is still contracted to Bayern until 2021 and is said to “fit perfectly” with the German club’s system and style of play, however, he did have a poor 2016/17 campaign and this, coupled with Rodriguez’ arrival, could open the door if the price is right.

  1. My view is ,the same as it was two years ago ,when lfc made the greatest signing they have in years .an my thoughts are he shud be tied down an not allowed to move anywhere for any price an that is klopp .say what he hasn’t done and carry on saying it and what he hasn’t done ,just don’t let him go .hes priceless ,slag him but ask yaself do you think this man has a shortage of job offers from the biggest clubs in the world ,am a Liverpool fan ,he has come to a club with a great history of being a strong force ,but where not at the moment ,he hasn’t had dosh thrown at him left right and centre to squander ,an he hasn’t asked for it ,he dragged his arse an doubt ands to different heights ,take one look at big barca an Munich boy pepi at man city how the mighty have fallen ,I,d shit my kecks if klopp went any where like that ,barca is a no go for any manerger at the mo the players manage themselves there but for how much longer ,there not making many moves to replace the elite its simaler at real but not as obviouse at the moment.both ther bubbles are soon to burst and what manerger would they love to rebuild ,exactly a manerger wud have to be nuts to go near ither of them ,now for pepi at city ,how much did they want as they seen the best manerger in the world well if he has another season like last year ja think he’s safe ,oooo this is klopp a year with out a doubt ,pogba wud you want him here for that much dosh,and the new signing from Everton that boy can score goals ,but going to Man U it goes against there way of play thank fuck he didn’t go to Chelsea .an to all you Man U fans that may be saying bitter scouser ,ya wrong because we have to worry if last season was a bad one for your selfs ,I hope its drastically worse for use this season ,Jose in his first year a bad year for United ,two trophys well done sir ,an that’s the truth ,an here’s another truth I hope ya win fuck all this year ,so ave said it all ,tie klopp down ,an this is his season ,he will wipe the board ,klopp best signing in years
