Jamal Musiala has 'turned down new contract at Bayern Munich' amid interest from Premier League clubs

Jamal Musiala has 'turned down new contract at Bayern Munich' amid interest from Premier League clubs

Liverpool and Manchester City are interested in bringing Jamal Musiala to the Premier League this summer.

Jamal Musiala has reportedly turned down a new deal at Bayern Munich worth £150,000 per-week as two Premier League clubs 'head the queue' for his signature.

The 21-year-old Germany international, who is regarded by many as one of the world's best young players, is said to be targeting a move to England's top flight this summer.

Manchester City are 'increasingly confident' of winning the race to sign Musiala, according to the Daily Star, who claim Liverpool are also keen on making a move.

The report goes on to suggest both teams sent scouts to watch Musiala play against Bayer Leverkusen last month.

Musiala's former club Chelsea are also showing a 'strong' interest in the attacking midfielder who has scored nine goals in 28 games across all competitions this season.

But it is said Mauricio Pochettino's side will struggle to persuade him to choose Stamford Bridge unless they qualify for the Europa League.

Musiala currently has two years left on his current contract at Bayern Munich, which means he will not come cheap. In fact, the 21-year-old will reportedly cost 'at least' £80 million.

Speaking to BILD last year, Musiala opened up on his ambitions for the future, as well as his thoughts on England's top flight.

"I want to be one of the best players in the world. That's my ambition. In one or two years, I want to be at the highest possible level," he said.

"The Premier League is currently the strongest and most attractive league in the world. But I feel comfortable here and focused on being successful with Bayern.

Musiala added: "But you never know what will happen in a few years."

The Stuttgart-born attacking midfielder moved to England at the age of seven and played for Southampton and Chelsea youth.

He would spend eight years at Cobham before joining Bayern Munich in the summer of 2016. Musiala has since made over 100 appearances for the Bavarian club.
