Benjamin Pavard wants to leave Bayern Munich. The Frenchman is reportedly keen to join England in the Premier League. The hottest candidate is now Liverpool FC. Jurgen Klopp and the Reds are said to be in talks with the Pavard side.
According to consistent media reports, Pavard informed Bayern weeks ago that he does not want to extend his contract (duration until 2024) and wants to leave the club in the summer. The 27-year-old has recently been linked with many clubs. As reported by “Bild” football boss Christian Falk, the hottest track leads to the English Premier League.
Jürgen Klopp: Reds coach hot for Benjamin Pavard
According to Falk, Reds coach Jürgen Klopp is desperately looking for a new central defender. While Joe Gomez and Joel Matip were unreliable last season, Ibrahima Konaté has been struggling with injuries.
From the point of view of the transfer insider, Pavard would immediately be a candidate for a regular place in the center of defense alongside Virgil van Dijk. The Frenchman has repeatedly emphasized in the past that he would like to play regularly in central defense in the future.

In addition to the Reds, Pavard is also said to be on the wish list of Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Inter Milan and FC Barcelona. According to “Bild” information, FC Bayern is demanding a transfer fee of 30 million euros.
