Bayern Munich are in regular contact with Serge Gnabry and his agent about a new contract, but failed to hit the reported Liverpool transfer target to extend his contract.
That’s according to Kicker, who report that the Bundesliga giants and Gnabry are currently unable to find a deal. Sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic is leading Der FCB’s negotiations, as he looks set to avoid allowing the German into the final year of his term.
Gnabry last signed a new contract in 2019 as a reward for his early efforts at the Allianz Arena. Spending the first season after 8 million euros (£6.5m) on loan from Werder Bremen on loan at Hoffenheim, the winger has flourished in Bavaria with 13 goals and nine assists in the 2018/19 season.
Gnabry is now on track to forge his best Bundesliga journey with Bayern Munich this term after an impressive season. The 26-year-old has 10 goals and 4 assists in 22 appearances – just two short of his personal best of the 2019/20 season, with 11 assists. create.
Bayern Munich don’t want to put themselves in danger of losing Gnabry in the summer or going free next year. But Salihamidzic is yet to make an offer that meets the 31-year-old striker, given the proposed salary or length. He is currently earning £115k a week with Der FCB.
Bayern open Gnabry door for Liverpool transfer
Bayern Munich’s difficulties in convincing Gnabry to sign a new contract could open the door for Liverpool to make a move. Germany sky reported Jurgen Klopp’s team plus Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona everyone is monitoring his situation.
The big four could move on to a potential former Arsenal client this summer if he doesn’t sign a new contract. Bayern will certainly demand more than they paid Werder Bremer to sell Gnabry – who Rio Ferdinand called ‘world class’ – although there are no new terms.
