Liverpool are reportedly still interested in signing Bayern Munich winger Serge Gnabry as a replacement for Divock Origi this summer.
The Lowdown: Gnabry superb for Bayern
Gnabry scored 14 goals and registered five assists in the league alone last season, while he will also be hoping to star for Germany in the upcoming World Cup.
His current Bayern deal expires next summer, however, and it could be that a fresh challenge comes his way before then.
The Latest: Reds still in the mix
According to Sport, Julian Ward and Co are keen on acquiring Gnabry’s signature this summer, seeing him as the right man to come in for the departed Origi and also Sadio Mane.
He is also seen as an alternative to Marco Asensio, who the Reds have also been linked with recently.
The Verdict: Ideal fit, but is he needed?
Gnabry is a fantastic player who has been hailed as ‘world-class’ by Rio Ferdinand, so the idea of him in a Liverpool shirt is undoubtedly exciting.
That being said, the former Arsenal man does turn 27 this summer and wouldn’t necessarily be a long-term acquisition – something Jurgen Klopp often looks for in his signings.
On top of that, Gnabry would surely be expecting to start every week but he would have Luis Diaz ahead of him in the pecking order in his left-sided attacking role. For that reason, it feels unlikely that a move happens immediately, but perhaps he could arrive and switch to the right flank if Mohamed Salah leaves next summer.
