VfB Stuttgart and Leeds United are chasing Bayern Munich goalkeeper Alexander Nübel.
According to Sport1, ‘nothing has changed’ with regards to the 26-year-old’s desire to leave after spending the last two seasons on loan at AS Monaco.
Bayern and Nubel have agreed it’s best for them to part ways in this window. The club’s honorary president Uli Hoeneß has also admitted Nübel could leave the club.
“We accepted his decision. If he finds a club, he can go,” Hoeneß said, as quoted by Sport1.
It’s claimed Stuttgart want to make a second offer for the stopper while Leeds are ‘still in the running’ to sign him. The German’s contract expires in 2025 and Sport1 say his deal would have to be extended if he were to leave on another loan deal.
It’s said Thomas Tuchel’s side have rejected Stuttgart’s offer since Bayern would prefer to sell him. Bild add a permanent deal is ‘out of question’ for Stuttgart, who are planning to make a second loan offer for the German.
The report says Stuttgart will have to hurry because Leeds are interested and ‘want to sign’ Nübel on a permanent deal. This would please Bayern, but there’s doubt over whether the player would be keen on a move to Elland Road.
