Wirtz Premier League switch newest
Fabrizio Romano has provided an update on Florian Wirtz’s transfer situation after the remarkable rise of the child prodigy from Bayer Leverkusen.
The 18-year-old is one of the most exciting young talents in Europe right now, and it seems only a matter of time before he deserves a big move elsewhere.
Christian Falk recently claimed that a number of top clubs look to Wirtz, including five from the Premier League.
Check out Falk’s tweet below when the Sport Bild reporter claimed that Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal were all interested in him, along with Bayern Munich …
TRUE ? @ ManCity-Scoute Florian Witz (18) intensely. @ChelseaFC @LFC @ManUtd and @Arsenal are also interested. But: @FCBayern leads the race for a transfer in 2023 to @BILD_Sport @ValentinaMaceri pic.twitter.com/kk7pbp2H0j

Romano has now provided an update on Wirtz’s situation, which may add even more weight to these rumors, although he does not name any specific English clubs that have the German national player in their sights …
FC Bayern, Premier League clubs and many others are closely following Florian Wirtz’s situation. Bayer Leverkusen’s position is still the same: he is considered “untouchable” for next summer. ??? # Transfers

Romano adds an important detail, however: Leverkusen allegedly see their talented young player as “untouchable” next summer, which calls into question a move for the time being.
Wirtz is making good progress with his current club, so it might be worth waiting for his time before accepting offers from the European elite.
The teen’s offensive qualities would surely make him a hit at Chelsea now as the Blues may need upgrades for unconvincing signings like Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech.

Arsenal usually need a major overhaul after difficult years, with Wirtz perhaps being the ideal long-term successor to Mesut Özil.
Man Utd have been spending a lot lately but could do well to keep recruiting in this area of the pitch after arguably relying a little too much on Bruno Fernandes to make a difference in that department.
