Update In Liverpool’s Interest For This Bayern Munich Star Forward: Should Klopp Be Bothered?

In a recent interview (via the Daily Express), Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge denied reports linking Thomas Muller with a move away from the Allianz Arena. When asked whether the German forward could part ways with the Bavarian giants, Rummenigge said (via the Daily Express), “I can not imagine that.

“The relationship between Thomas and Bayern is totally intact and will remain an important part of our club.

“If Thomas would sit contentedly on the bench, he would be in the wrong club.

“That’s the reaction we even want, but he still has to deal with the situation seriously.

“He’s exemplary.”

In an interview with Liverpool Echo’s Blood Red Podcast, German football expert Kevin Hatchard tipped Liverpool to rekindle their interest in securing the services of Muller. However, those claims have been denied by Rummenigge who insists that the Bundesliga sensation is still an important member of Niko Kovac’s squad.

Muller’s Decent Record Despite A Quiet Start To This Campaign

The 30-year-old has made a slow start to this campaign, but he has still managed to be a creative outlet for Bayern in the offensive end of the field. The German frontman has featured in ten matches for the Bavarian giants this term, netting one goal while grabbing four assists on all fronts. 

Muller has also played a lot of football for the German national side having made 100 appearances for his nation at the international level while scoring 38 goals in the process.

What Does The German Forward Offer On The Pitch?

Muller has lost a yard of pace from his game as he is heading into the twilight years of his playing career. However, it doesn’t stop him from linking up play with others and causing problems for the opposition in the final third. He is capable of unlocking a rigid defence and is also an unforgiving finisher from close range. 

Should The Reds Be Bothered With Muller’s Future?

However, the German forward is way past his prime so Jurgen Klopp shouldn’t be too concerned if he is not unavailable for a transfer. Liverpool’s current frontline is comprised of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah with Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri playing as the back-ups on Klopp’s bench. 

Therefore, the Merseyside outfit are in no immediate need to bring in more attacking reinforcements, certainly not someone like Muller who won’t improve the quality of Klopp’s first XI. The Reds would be in a better position if they decided to go for more proven talents so that they can improve their chances of bagging more silverware in the coming years.
