Leon Goretzka Set To Join Bayern Munich

Liverpool are closing in on the signing of Leon Goretzka according to reports in Germany.

The news of Goretzka's impending free transfer to Bayern will come as a bitter blow to Liverpool fans, who had expected the Germany global to arrive at Anfield in the summer following a series of reports claiming the midfielder was on his way to Merseyside.

The German global is out of contract with Schalke at the end of this season and will be allowed to finalise a pre-contract agreement with a new club from next Monday, with Liverpool now emerging as strong contenders to sign him.

German newspaper Bild, as quoted by the Sun, is reporting that the Merseyside outfit are set to beat the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur to the 22-year-old midfielder's signature in the summer.

The Reds though face competition from other Premier League clubs, as well as Juventus.

It would also make Goretzka the second Schalke player to leave for Anfield on a free transfer in recent years, with Joel Matip making the change 18 months ago.

However, Mundo Deportivo (h/t Football Espana) outlined Goretzka as Barca's "No. 1 midfield target" ahead of the January transfer window, when they will attempt to seal a cut-price deal for his services.

German outlet Bild claims Jurgen Klopp has pulled off another transfer coup just days after beating Manchester City to Virgil van Dijk.
