Bayern still keeping tabs on Wirtz

By Rune Gjerulff   @runegjerulff

Sport Bild reports that Bayer Leverkusen wonderkid Florian Wirtz remains a target for Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich remain interested in Bayer Leverkusen youngster Florian Wirtz, according to Sport Bild.
The German champions have held talks with Wirtz in the past and remain in contact with the player’s entourage.

Even if Wirtz only signed a long-term contract extension until 2027 last summer, Leverkusen are under pressure to keep him, with the 19-year-old demanding Champions League football and ‘Die Werkself’ currently in 12th place.

The price could be a stumbling block for Bayern, though, with Leverkusen likely to demand more than €100 million for their prized asset.

Wirtz hasn’t played since he suffered a cruciate ligament rupture in March, but is back in full training.
