Liverpool have been sensible in the transfer market in recent years. They don’t panic, they buy when the right opportunity comes around at the right time. The right opportunity could be about to come around again. Reported Liverpool target Jamal Musiala has allegedly stalled on a new contract; the Reds should pounce.
Who is Jamal Musiala?
17-year-old attacking midfielder Jamal Musiala was born in Stuttgart but he spent most of his childhood in England.
The youngster was on the books at the Chelsea academy before he was snapped up by Bayern Munich in 2019.
Since then he’s starred for the Munich reserves as well as making sporadic appearances for the first team.
Despite being born in Germany the youngster has so far elected to play for England having turned out for the Three Lions youth sides, despite his young age he has two caps for the U21s.
Musiala contract talks stall
Still on a youth terms, Bayern Munich are keen to tie the youngster down to a professional deal.
According to Goal, talks over a new Jamal Musiala contract have reached an impasse.
It is claimed that the stall is due to the wonderkid’s camp demanding £100k a week for the teenager.
Liverpool should pounce on Musiala
Having the next best thing can be worth millions to a club.
Liverpool should capitalise on Musiala stalling over a new contract.
Bayern will have to do a deal on the cheap in the summer should the teenager be determined to not sign a new deal.
Otherwise the Reds could snap him up on a free the following summer.
Sure, compromises over his salary would have to be made but his market value increase in the next five or so years means that the Reds could make an enormous profit off the teenager.
