Bayern Munich rival Arsenal, Liverpool in Joao Palhinha chase

Joao Palhinha has been linked with a move away from Fulham at the end of the season, and a number of top clubs are keen on him.

A report from Football Insider has claimed that German champions Bayern Munich will battle it out with Premier League giants Arsenal and Liverpool for the signature of Fulham midfielder Joao Palhinha.

The 28-year-old is one of the best midfielders in the league right now, and he has established himself as a key player for Fulham. However, the West London outfit are open to lucrative offers for the player, and it remains to be seen where he ends up.

Bayern Munich need to add more quality and defensive cover in the middle of the park. Joshua Kimmich has been linked with an exit from the German club, and they will have to replace him adequately. Palhinha has the physicality and technical attributes to compete at the highest level, and he could improve the Bundesliga side.

Joao Palhinha would improve Arsenal and Liverpool immensely

Meanwhile, Arsenal will need to find a quality alternative to Thomas Partey, who has been linked with a move away from the club. The Ghana international is a quality player, but he has had a number of injury problems this season.

Arsenal need to bring in younger alternative, and Palhinha is at the peak of his powers right now. The 28-year-old is well settled in the Premier League, and he could make an immediate impact at Arsenal. They considered selling Partey to land the Portuguese international this past winter.

The Gunners will be hoping to win the league title, and they need quality players at their disposal. Palhinha could form a solid partnership with Declan Rice at the heart of their midfield. Meanwhile, Liverpool need a younger alternative to Wataru Endo as well. The Japanese international has been phenomenal since joining the club, but he needs more support.

He is the only specialist defensive midfielder at the club right now, and Liverpool need alternatives. The Fulham midfielder would improve all three clubs and he is certainly good enough to play for them. It will be interesting to see where he ends up. Fulham are likely to demand a premium for him. It remains to be seen whether his suitors are prepared to pay up.
