Liverpool have reportedly set their sights on the free transfer of Borussia Mönchengladbach’s Matthias Ginter.

The defender’s contract expires in 2022 and has confirmed his decision not to sign a new deal with the Bundesliga side. Ever since the 27-year-old revealed he has “decided to take another path” in his career, he has been linked to a handful of clubs.

Inter Milan have been credited with an interest in the centre-back as the Nerazzurri have been ‘monitoring him for some time’, according to FcInterNews.

The Germany international will be available on a free transfer next summer and his name has ‘returned in great fashion’ at the San Siro, where the Serie A winners have proposed a four-year deal worth €3m [likely net] per year.

However, it’s claimed Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Barcelona are also in the picture to sign Ginter.

Jürgen Klopp’s side have ‘only made one enquiry’ so far, while the Bavarian club are at the window for him.

As for the La Liga side, the website aren’t aware of their stance just yet.

That being said, with Inter already making a proposal, the Reds need to step up their efforts if they want to beat the Italian champions and others to secure Ginter’s services next summer and bring him to Anfield.
