Bayern Munich’s young star, Jamal Musiala, is reportedly “on the radar” for Liverpool, but there are several reasons to believe this transfer won’t happen.
Musiala is widely considered one of the best young attacking midfielders in Europe, and is fast-becoming one of Bayern’s brightest prospects.
As always, a host of big clubs immediately begin to be linked to these talented youngsters, and Musiala is no different.
However, the reporter added bad news for excited supporters, saying: “His move to LFC is absolutely unlikely” and “Musiala also has no thoughts of farewell at the moment.”

While Liverpool could of course hold interest, there are several reasons not to believe a transfer will happen. Firstly, it is nonsensical to describe Musiala as a “replacement for Salah,” given the German is not a right winger.
In his career, he has only ever played a more central midfield position or to the left – not exactly a substitute for Salah.
With the youngster’s contract expiring in 2026, he is currently on around £90,000 per week and his agents, Germany-based 11WINS GmbH, could push for a better deal in the next year using other clubs’ interest as leverage.
All in all, this is one to ignore for now, but that’s not to say Jurgen Klopp wouldn’t take the talented German international at Anfield.
