‘Pep Guardiola has sent scouts to Leverkusen time and time again recently to watch Wirtz,’ journalist Christian Falk told BILD, as further reported by Sports Witness.
‘There are, of course, a few others sitting there from Chelsea, United, Arsenal and Liverpool. So many, many Premier League clubs are interested but City very specifically.
‘We do know, though, that he’s not in a hurry to move to the Premier League just yet. The young man Florian Wirtz is still developing at Leverkusen, and there have already been talks with FC Bayern, which of course are only indirect.
‘So that’s the responsibility of his father and his advisor. It does seem that Bayern have a very, very good chance of being the next step.’
