Liverpool tipped to beat €3million/season offer to sign Matthias Ginter

Liverpool are reportedly the favourites to land the signature of versatile and highly rated Borussia Monchengladbach star Matthias Ginter.

The 27-year-old can play at right-back, centre-back and as a defensive midfielder so you can see why top managers are drawn to him as he provides them with more options and the ability to switch things in-game without making a substitute.

Similar to how Trent Alexander-Arnold moves into a more creative central-midfield role when Liverpool need a goal.

It essentially offers Jurgen Klopp the ability to bring on a no.10 without having to waste a substitute and if he had someone like Ginter on the pitch, he could just switch the two around and change the whole dynamic of the game.

FC Inter News claims that Liverpool are the Reds are interested in Ginter, who will be a free agent in the summer when his current terms expire unless Gladbach can convince him to sign a new deal.

The report claims that there is a growing feeling that Liverpool will act ‘clever’ and make a higher salary offer to beat Inter Milan to a deal and sign Ginter.

They have made an offer of €3million (£2.5m) per season or £48,000/week which is quite low.

For reference, Curtis Jones, a relatively junior player in the Liverpool squad is reportedly on £47,000/week.

Premier League clubs are able to significantly outspend Italian due to the commercial power the league has but the depth the Reds have at centre-back means signing the German seems unlikely.

While Liverpool could easily offer more for Ginter, he’s not someone the Reds need unless Jurgen Klopp wants him to come in and provide depth and cover for Fabinho because the Brazilian is so important to the way his side plays and when he’s not on the pitch, they are easily overrun.

Signing Ginter would mean that Klopp would not need to stress too much when Fabinho gets injured or suspended even if there aren’t many defensive midfielders on the planet that can replicate or match what the former AS Monaco star offers for the Anfield side.

His absence was felt against Spurs as they were breezed past in the middle of the park with no real anchor and without someone who is able to read the game and sniff out danger before it arrives.
