Liverpool face £110m Florian Wirtz transfer battle after Real Madrid stance emerges

Real Madrid could pose a challenge to Liverpool in their pursuit of Bayer Leverkusen standout Florian Wirtz. Despite the summer transfer window not yet being officially open, Liverpool are already associated with various potential signings. Among them, Wirtz has been identified as a potential target in certain reports.

The versatile midfielder played a significant role in Leverkusen’s Bundesliga triumph under the management of former Liverpool star Xabi Alonso. Wirtz’s impressive performances have led to speculation about a high-value transfer this summer, although previous reports have hinted that a move might not materialize during this transfer window.

Liverpool have been previously linked with a potential move for Wirtz, but Real Madrid is reportedly eager to acquire the playmaker, following their signing of Kylian Mbappe. According to the report, Wirtz’s price tag could reach €130 million (£110 million) for any club interested in securing his services next summer.

Wirtz’s agent, who also happens to be his father, spoke about the Leverkusen star’s future back in March. He emphasized the 21-year-old’s dedication to the Bundesliga club and highlighted his enjoyment of working alongside Alonso.

“Florian has a contract in Leverkusen until 2027,” Hans-Joachim Wirtz told Kolner Stadt-Anzeiger back in March. “That is roughly how long he will stay at Leverkusen.

“There’s no answer what will happen when. We should wait for the next two years and then we’ll see what happens.”


Liverpool are in dire need of quality attacker like Florian Wirtz especially if Mohammed Salah decides to leave next year when his contract comes to an end. The Reds cannot afford to allow a recurrence of the same situation, especially after experiencing a shortfall in goal-scoring capabilities last season, which have been instrumental in their success in numerous major competitions in recent years. Players like Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz have faced criticism for their perceived lack of clinical finishing in the attack. Bringing in Wirtz could serve as the spark that initiates a new phase of advancement for the club. As the German talent dons the Liverpool shirt, rival clubs can only observe with envy and resentment, realizing the potential impact he could have on the team’s performance.

Amidst the intense interest from several elite clubs like Real Madrid, it’s evident that new manager Arne Slot must move swiftly if he intends to secure the services of one of Europe’s most promising talents. Acquiring such a player could significantly bolster the team’s chances of contending for the title next season. To position Liverpool as contenders not only for the league title but also for success in all competitions, this is precisely the caliber of signing that Slot and his support staff should prioritize pursuing.
