Liverpool appear to have fallen behind in the hunt for Florian Wirtz, with Real Madrid apparently moving into pole position for completing a £127 million transfer during the summer of 2025. Wirtz, one of the youthful standout players of Bayer Leverkusen's indomitable Bundesliga title-winning season and now vying for UEFA Euro 2024 triumph on home soil, is expected to attract admirers from around the continent. Liverpool has been mentioned as a prospective destination by various outlets, but the most recent update is not encouraging for the Reds.

According to Marca, two agreements have been reached that will allow the 21-year-old to go to the Santiago Bernabeu instead of Anfield in one year's time. The first agreement exists between the footballer, his representatives, and his present club, Leverkusen. This will ensure that he stays with the German champions throughout the end of the following 2024/25 season.

Wirtz established himself as one of Europe's greatest promising talents last season, leading Bayern Leverkusen through an undefeated Bundesliga season, netting 11 goals and recording 11 assists over 32 league games. The 21-year-old has recently been linked with a big-money transfer away from Germany as an outcome of his outstanding season, with Liverpool reportedly among his admirers and anticipating to splash the dough this summer under Arne Slot. However, the Reds would like to shift their focus away from Wirtz because a deal with the Merseyside club appears unlikely.

Bayer Leverkusen look to purchase Girona midfielder during transfer window

One of Girona's promising individuals, Aleix Garcia, in specific, may attract attention during the upcoming summer transfer window. Garcia has emerged as a potential target for Leverkusen this summer as Xabi Alonso looks to strengthen his options in the center of the field.

Although Girona and Leverkusen have still not contacted each other to talk about the transfer. As previously stated, Barcelona exhibited interest in purchasing Aleix Garcia at the start of the last campaign and was even linked with a January move for the midfielder but they might have found other alternatives.
