DONE DEAL✅✅: Fabrizio Romano Confirms Arsenal Have Moved Ahead Of Chelsea, Liverpool and Man United To Sign £65M Defender Better Than Saliba

A host of Premier League sides have been reportedly contacted by intermediaries over the potential availability of Matthijs de Ligt.

According to TBR, Matthijs de Ligt is reportedly available for a transfer away from Bayern Munich in the summer as intermediaries contact a host of Premier League teams.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United are the teams in touch with people involved with the Dutch defender as he looks to move away from Germany.

Matthijs de Ligt to leave Bayern Munich?

Matthijs de Ligt may no longer be the preferred choice to start games for Bayern Munich, as it showed last season under Thomas Tuchel. While the manager has since left the club, the situation might remain the same under new boss Vincent Kompany, who prefers ball-playing centre-backs in his system.

Meanwhile, intermediaries connected to De Ligt have reported that they contacted a host of Premier League sides about a possible transfer for the £70 million-rated Bundesliga star. The idea to play in England may not be a problem for the defender, who may not want to endure time on the bench at Bayern.

Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United are among the teams being contacted by intermediaries, as De Ligt might seek a way out of Bayern. These are all clubs, including Chelsea, on the lookout for a new centre-back, and the 24-year-old might be a significant option to consider.


De Ligt, valued at £70 million by Bayern Munich

Whether many clubs like it or not, De Ligt will not be sold on the cheap even if his Bayern career has taken a downward trajectory. The Bavarians are aware of the market conditions and will likely demand around £70 million to sell the Dutch international, especially if he excells with the Netherlands at the Euros.

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag would like a reunion with his former charge as he looks for a new centre-back to shore up the backline. Liverpool are keen on a defender of his quality as well, but the price tag may prove a problem.

As for Arsenal, they are looking for a younger centre-back to play back up to William Saliba, while Chelsea have chosen Tosin Adarabioyo as their preferred option. Either of those Loindon sides might still pursue De Ligt should Bayern Munich offer favourable terms, such as a reduction in their asking price.
