Transfer News: Liverpool standing in the way of Real Madrid for Bayern Munich winger Serge Gnabry

Liverpool are in the way of Spanish giants Real Madrid in their pursuit of Bayern Munich forward Serge Gnabry, as per SPORT (h/t Liverpool Echo).

The Reds are apparently ‘considering’ a move for the German international after losing both Sadio Mane and Divock Origi this summer. Mane, in fact, is now Gnabry’s teammate.

Both of them are versatile forwards and it remains to be seen how the Senegal international’s entry at the Allianz Arena impacts the former Arsenal forward’s playing time. Last season, he was an important part of Julian Nagelsmann’s side.

He managed a tally of 17 goals and 10 assists from 45 games across all competitions. Gnabry can play out wide as well as down the middle of the attack, as he has for Germany on a few occasions.

The German’s ability to play as a centre-forward could be what appeals to Los Blancos. While Rodrygo and Vinicius Jr are two of the most exciting young wingers in European football, Karim Benzema isn’t getting any younger.

LFC, meanwhile, would want some sort of depth in their team after seeing Origi and Mane leave this summer. Takumi Minamino is also close to sealing a transfer to AS Monaco.

Having only added Darwin Nunez this summer, it is obvious that personnel-wise, the Reds have weakened themselves up front when compared to the squad they possessed last month.

Gnabry would be a really smart buy and we could offer the 26-year-old winger a route back to English football after his failed stint with Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal. His current deal is set to expire next year, which could play in our favour.
