But his agent has spoken out to deny the speculation in a mega boost for Goretzka ’s other suitors. Incidentally, Goretzka is an alternative transfer target for Barca if Liverpool hold firm on Coutinho. As for Arsenal, they have been linked with Goretzka for weeks.

Goretzka is set to leave Gelsenkirchen after five years, with the 22-year-old entering the final six months of his contract in 2018. Furthermore, though Schalke are still hoping to convince the youngster to extend his spell at the Veltins-Arena, Liverpool could easily offer better terms.

The Reds are keen on a move for the player following the departure of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona and the uncertainty surrounding Emre Can’s future, with the German likely to leave for Juventus at the end of the season.

Twitter: Aufgrund vieler Nachfragen: Leon #Goretzka und @FCBayern sind sich über einen Wechsel einig. Vor der Unterschrift m… (@cfbayern) Liverpool were interested in signing the German international and they were hoping that he would follow in the footsteps of Joel Matip by leaving Schalke to move to Anfield, but the player had decided to stay in the Bundesliga and join Munich. It was reported a few weeks ago that the 22-year-old was close to joining the German champions but Liverpool were still hoping to get a deal done, but it looks like they were unable to convince him to make a move to Merseyside. Goretzka will officially become a Bayern player in the summer, but until then, he’ll remain at Schalke and try to help them secure a place in the Champions League. They currently sit in third place in the Bundesliga, but is a very tight competition this season with just four points separating them from 10th placed Hannover 96.
