Liverpool and Manchester United are both monitoring the situation of Bayern Munich winger Serge Gnabry as the German’s contract situation is yet to be agreed.
Gnabry’s current deal runs out at the end of next season and the player appears to be no closer to agreeing new terms with the Bundesliga giants.
As reported by Sky Germany, the player is expecting to be paid the same as fellow wingers Leroy Sane and Kingsley Coman who are paid around 15 million euros per year.
Gnabry cam through the ranks at Arsenal but made just 10 Premier League appearances for the Gunners before departing to Werder Bremen.
After a superb season with Werder, Bayern came calling and the German has developed into a world class winger for the Bundesliga giants, scoring 10 goals in every season since joining.
He has 10 in 20 so far this season but with less than 18 months remaining on his current deal, speculation over his future could continue to build.
Sky Germany reports that Premier League sides Liverpool and Man Utd are watching Gnabry’s situation as are Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.
Writing in his Daily Star column, ex-Arsenal man Merson said: “I really hope Luis Diaz going to Liverpool doesn’t mean Mo Salah is off because that would be the biggest disgrace ever.
“It took them 30 years to get back to being a force, to dominating teams again, to winning big trophies and having that reputation.
“To get to that point and let the best player in the world go would be absolutely mind-blowing.
“I don’t care how much he wants. He’s the best player in the world! And these fans have waited and waited for success like this. Pay him what he wants.
“This is Liverpool football club. The owner wouldn’t think twice about paying his star pitcher at the Boston Red Sox big money. What makes Salah any different?
“No-one scores goals like Salah does. He plays on the wing but he puts up the kind of figures other players can only dream of. He looks like scoring every game he plays.
“It doesn’t matter how good Diaz is. He’s not going to put up the sort of figures Salah does. Absolutely not.
“And if you’re Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool let Salah go, what message does that send you? You’ve turned him into the best in the world and just let him go? I’d be so disappointed.”
