Thomas Muller has been linked to the Premier League on several occasions during his career and there is interest in bringing the German to these shores again this summer.
Bild report that he is a transfer target for Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool, despite Bayern Munich insisting that he isn’t for sale. There is also interest from Juventus and that could complicate matters for the three Premier League teams.
There has always been big clubs interested in the German international, but this summer, there could be a bigger desire from the player to move clubs. The reason for that is the arrival of James Rodriguez who will take minutes away from Muller in a World Cup year.
Jurgen Klopp has expressed internally at Anfield that he would love to see his compatriot arrive at the club. He remains contracted until 2021 in Munich, but a transfer isn’t completely out of the question.
Which Premier League club would Thomas Muller suit most?
The 27-year-old is a World champion at international level and a European champion at domestic level. He is regarded as one of the best players in the world. Therefore, he would improve every club.
The problem he has always had is, he doesn’t have a position that he plays in regularly. Muller is versatile and capable of playing in nearly every position across the attack.
If Chelsea weren’t signing Alvaro Morata, he could have been a good fit for the Blues, but there isn’t a clear spot for him at Stamford Bridge now.
He would be a great signing for either Liverpool or Arsenal. Klopp likes to play with a fluid front line and he would suit that down to a tee.
The false nine position in the 4-3-3 would be perfect for the German as he would be given the license to roam in advanced areas. That said, Liverpool have Roberto Firmino and are well stocked for attacking players.
A move for Muller shouldn’t be a high priority.
Arsenal have already made one big name addition in Alexandre Lacazette, but they want further reinforcements and a move for Thomas Lemar looks unlikely.
They may find it difficult to convince him to move to a club without Champions League football, but he would be a great fit for their new 3-4-2-1 formation.
Muller is one of the best players in the world on his day and there would be a place for him in nearly every team. If a Premier League club did manage to sign him, it could be the best transfer completed this summer.
