In a recent report, Sport claimed that Liverpool are eyeing a move for Bayern Munich winger Serge Gnabry this summer. It is understood that the Reds could face competition in the form of Real Madrid in pursuit of the German winger who has just got a year left to run in his Bayern contract.
Gnabry’s Impressive Numbers In German Football Last Season
Gnabry continued to prove his worth as a consistent performer in Bundesliga last season when he produced several productive performances as a key member of Bayern’s frontline. The Stuttgart-born talent registered 17 goals and ten assists in 45 matches for the Munich outfit in the previous campaign on all fronts.
The German wing wizard gave a good account of himself by averaging 2.0 shots, 1.4 key passes and 1.9 dribbles per game in Bundesliga. He even distributed the ball really well in the final third, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 82% in league football (stats via whoscored).
What Will Gnabry Bring To Liverpool?
Gnabry can use his pace to get in behind the opponent’s backline and has got the vision to create a few decent chances for his teammates in the final third. Gnabry is primarily a right-sided wide player but can even play on the left flank or operate as a secondary striker down the middle if needed.
The German sensation can strike the ball with power and accuracy. He deserves a lot of credit for scoring and creating his fair share of goals over the past ten months.
Gnabry will bring more pace and goals to Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp‘s attack. At 26, the Bayern Munich star is about to enter his prime which makes him a good option for the Reds to consider in this off-season.
Gnabry could even help the Merseyside outfit compete for even more silverware in the coming seasons. Furthermore, he could serve as an ideal replacement for Sadio Mane, who joined Bayern Munich recently, at Anfield. A player of Gnabry’s skill set and versatility could help Liverpool pip Manchester City at the top of English football, so Klopp should try everything to get a deal done for him this summer.
