Liverpool were recently linked with a move for 17-year-old Bayern Munich wonderkid Jamal Musiala, and after his latest superb display in the Champions League win against Lazio, the Reds should increase their interest in him, in the hopes that he could be persuaded by a move to Anfield.
The former Chelsea youngster became the youngest Englishman to score in the Champions League as he curled home Bayern’s second goal in the 4-1 win, which also saw him become the Bundesliga side’s youngest ever scorer in the competition.
Despite being a few days away from his 18th birthday, Musiala has established himself as a regular in Hans-Dieter Flick’s side this season and plays with a maturity way beyond his years, as he showed great composure to place the ball past former Reds shot-stopper Pepe Reina on Tuesday night.

It wasn’t just his goal that was impressive however, as he looks confident on the ball and is regularly involved, as he had more touches than Lazio’s star man Ciro Immobile, whilst registering an impressive 89% pass accuracy, per SofaScore.
Although his contract is set to expire in 2022, recent reports have suggested that he will sign a new deal until 2026 shortly, which would perhaps bring an end to Liverpool’s chances of signing him for a reasonable price this summer, so they should arguably act now in the hope that they can make the youngster a better offer.
Considering Musiala has been able to establish himself in the current Champions League holders’ side aged just 17, it seems clear that he possesses incredible ability, and if he were to join the Reds, he and Harvey Elliott could arguably both become world-class attacking players under Jurgen Klopp.
Therefore, even if there is only a very small chance that Musiala could become a Liverpool player, Michael Edwards should do everything he can to try and bring him to the Premier League in the future.
