Bayern Munich now listening to offers for €70M star Liverpool "requested updates" on in October

Liverpool are keeping a close eye on Alphonso Davies as the Bayern Munich fullback's contract inches towards its 2025 expiry which has put Europe's major clubs on alert.

Jurgen Klopp is having to make do without Andy Robertson after the Scotland international suffered a dislocated shoulder that required surgery, ruling him out until 2024.

In his place, Kostas Tsimikas has been playing far more regularly but is yet to convince he is capable of displacing Robertson when he's fit and with some erratic decision making in recent games, Liverpool are reportedly assessing the future at left-back.

Robertson is now 29 and while he is certainly still good enough to bomb up and down the left flank, it's no surprise that the club is assessing their options.

What's the latest transfer news on Alphonso Davies to Liverpool?

The Canadian is a fantastic player but Bayern will be worried about losing him for free when his contract expires in 2025.

If an extension cannot be reached before the end of this season with a new contract offer likely, the Bundesliga club will likely opt to sell him to capitalise on potentially their last chance to make a profit on him.

Now valued at €70 million (£61m), he joined the club in 2018 for €14 million (£12.2m).

Recapping the context of the latest update on a Liverpool transfer for Alphonso Davies

Journalist François Plateau reported in October that the Reds had "requested updates" on Alphonso Davies future at Bayern Munich ahead of next summer's transfer window.

In a follow-up to that tweet, it was claimed that Real Madrid and Manchester City are also interested.

Bayern will reportedly offer him a new deal in a bid to keep him at the club but if those talks pay off, a summer sale will be likely.

The latest on Davies to Liverpool

Reporting late last night, Plateau now states that Bayern Munich are now prepared to listen to offers for Davies with Liverpool "closely monitoring" the situation after a recent injury.

The 23-year-old, whose experience belies his age, suffered torn muscle fibre in April but has returned to action this season and has made 17 appearances.

The Canadian is playing consistently even if he may not be lighting the Bundesliga on fire.

Should Liverpool consider a move for Davies?

Somehow, Davies is still only 23 despite already having made 270 appearances in his young career.

The left-back is a five-time Bundesliga title, has won the DFB Pokal twice and, like some at Liverpool, lifted the Champions League to win all the major trophies he can in Germany.

Now maybe Davies is looking for a new challenge and Liverpool 2.0 could be the perfect place for him to further ehance his legacy by proving himself in the Premier League.

He certainly doesn't need to 'prove' himself but every top player like to be tested at the top level and it doesn't come more competitive at league level an in England.

From Liverpool's perspective, they can replace Robertson, who they signed when he was 23 and underrrated, with a highly-rated 23-year-old that has won the biggest trophies he possible could to this point.

It seems like a no-brainer but's also why Bayern Munich will fight tooth and nail to keep.

He helped win Bayern its sixth Champions League so him winning a seventh for Liverpool would be quite something.

But I'm getting ahead of myself - let's wait for more reports to emerge before we dream about the future. Liverpool also need to get back into the Champions League first...
