Liverpool are reportedly planning a shock move for Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller but face competition from Chelsea, Arsenal and Juventus.
According to the Liverpool Echo, the Reds feel the World Cup winner could be tempted away from the Allianz Arena. The report suggested Bayern may be willing to negotiate following the arrival of James Rodriguez from Real Madrid.
Per the report, Jurgen Klopp has told Liverpool he wants Muller at Anfield, although Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is also quoted as saying the Germany international is “unsellable.”
But obviously, the arrivals of Rodriguez and Corentin Tolisso will increase competition for places at Bayern.
Muller was far from his best last season, managing just five goals and 12 assists in 25 Bundesliga starts, per WhoScored.com. However, his creativity is unrivalled in the Bundesliga
Muller has been regularly linked with a move away from Bayern, to the Premier League in particular, but it’s difficult to see Carlo Ancelotti’s side allowing the World Cup winner to leave.
As against the reports on MailOnline that Muller may no longer have a first place at the club , Ancelotti has refuted suggestions that Rodriguez was brought in to replace Muller, while Liverpool have already strengthened their attack, bringing in Mohamed Salah and Dominic Solanke.
