Péter Gulácsi has starred for RB Leipzig this season, conceding 25 goals and keeping 15 clean sheets in 31 league matches. His performances and impressive statistics have caught the attention of other clubs.
Earlier this week, Bild suggested Tottenham Hotspur could be in the picture for the goalkeeper.
It was also explained the 31-year-old would be available for a ‘ridiculous price’ of €13m as that’s his current release clause.
Another report from Bild once again reiterates the keeper can leave the Bundesliga side for €13m in the next market.
The north London club get a mention as the outlet points out Tottenham, Borussia Dortmund and AS Roma have the Hungary international ‘on their list’ for the summer.
Leipzig chief Oliver Mintzlaff has made it his personal priority to offer a new contract to the custodian in order to remove the ‘cheap’ buyout clause. Gulácsi is also in favour of this as he’s looking to extend his contract until 2024 or 2025.
Jesse Marsch will be Julian Nagelsmann’s successor at the German club next season and the incoming manager has contacted Gulácsi several times.
Bild further explain Marsch wants to rely on Gulácsi to continue to be the club’s first choice keeper. This is important for the player because he ‘really wants to be number one’.
The Hungarian ‘feels at home’ with his family in Germany and also has full confidence of his goalkeeping coach, Frederik Gößling. These are a few other factors that would convince him to continue at Leipzig.
Leipzig have already made financial gains after agreeing to free Nagelsmann and Dayot Upamecano, and more sales could be expected after this season.
This means Gulácsi extension would be ‘economically viable’ for Leipzig, despite the crisis caused by the global pandemic.
Bild’s report points out various factors why a new deal could be on the cards for Gulácsi, and this could take him away from the likes of Tottenham and others.
