Chelsea, Man Utd and Arsenal are reportedly among clubs Interested in signing 18 year old Bundesliga rising star Florian Wirtz.
At just 18, the midfielder is already a Germany international and has attracted interests from some of Europe’s top guns since breaking into the scene.
According to BILD Sport, Arsenal, Chelsea, Man City, Man Utd, Liverpool, and Bayern Munich are in the race for the midfielder but it’s Bayern Munich who are currently leading the race to sign the Leverkusen wonderkid in 2023.
Wirtz made his first major mark in football after joining Bayer Leverkusen from Cologne in January 2020 as he made his Bundesliga debut in the club’s matchday 26 4-1 win over Werder Bremen, breaking Kai Havertz’ record by becoming the club’s youngest ever debutant and at the time, the Bundesliga’s third youngest player ever aged 17 years and 16 days old.
And just few days ago at the age of 18 years and 145 days, Wirtz became the youngest player to score 10 goals in the Bundesliga.
Florian Wirtz’ stock has been on the rise since his days at Cologne and for a player who broke a record previously held by Kai Havertz and has been likened to Julian Brandt, the sky is definitely his starting point.
His contract with Bayer Leverkusen expires in 2026 and Europe’s top guns would be looking to swoop as from 2023.
