Real Madrid and Liverpool reportedly face stiff competition from Serie A giants Juventus in the race to sign Serge Gnabry from Bayern Munich.
According to a report by Spanish outlet Fichajes, the race to sign Serge Gnabry in the summer transfer window is heating up, with Juventus joining the queue of prospective suitors. The 26-year-old Bayern Munich forward is also a target for Real Madrid and Liverpool.
Serge Gnabry has established himself as one of the best wide-attackers in Europe since joining Bayern Munich half a decade ago. The German international has come leaps and bounds in this period, becoming a pivotal figure for club and country.
The 26-year-old has enjoyed a solid 2021/22 campaign, amassing 14 goals and ten assists in 38 appearances across all competitions. But Gnabry’s long-term future has left Bayern Munich in a spot of bother, as he has a little over a year left on his contract. Such a situation has captured the attention of Real Madrid, Liverpool and Juventus.
The interest from Real Madrid stems from the rampant uncertainties surrounding the futures of Eden Hazard and Marco Asensio. While Hazard is almost certain to leave Real Madrid, Asensio could depart from the Santiago Bernabeu if he does not reach an agreement with Los Blancos over a new contract. Gnabry is thus a viable target for the Merengues.
As for Liverpool, the Reds could be forced to enter the market for a wide-attacker in the summer transfer window. That is because Mohamed Salah is yet to agree to a bumper new contract, with his deal running out next year. But recent reports have suggested that Salah could be on the verge of committing his future to Liverpool.
Meanwhile, Juventus will go into the summer transfer window to rebuild a squad that has left a lot to be desired this season. The Serie A giants have endured a tough 2021/22 season and will need to sign several top-class players to get back to their pomp, making Gnabry a viable target to reinforce the attack.
Recent reports have claimed that Gnabry could be open to leaving Bayern Munich, which will boost the prospects of Real Madrid, Liverpool and Juventus. It will be interesting to see if the Serie A giants can usurp the other suitors in the race to sign the 26-year-old German international.
