Florian Wirtz’s agent clarifies his situation amid Man City and Liverpool links

The father and agent of Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Florian Wirtz cautioned potential suitors that the 20-year-old is likely to remain with his current club for the next few years.

Bayer Leverkusen’s Florian Wirtz has played a crucial role in Leverkusen’s success this season, showcasing the dazzling form he exhibited before sustaining a serious knee injury that sidelined him for most of 2022.

With eight goals and 17 assists this season, Wirtz‘s performances have understandably attracted attention from Europe’s top clubs. Both Liverpool and Manchester City are eying the German international. However, Wirtz’s father, who also serves as his agent, believes that interested clubs may need to display patience if they wish to secure a deal.

“Florian has a contract in Leverkusen until 2027,” Hans Wirtz told¬†Kolner Stadt-Anzeiger. “That will also roughly be the amount of time he will spend in Leverkusen.

“There is no answer to what happens when. We should wait for the next two years and then we will see where the path leads.”

Wirtz Sr. also expressed admiration for Leverkusen boss Xabi Alonso, who has been rumored to bring the midfielder to Anfield if he replaces Jurgen Klopp this summer.

“Florian is very lucky with Xabi Alonso, who has many qualities,” he said. “He is great with the entire team. This is the right coach at the right time.”

Leverkusen will likely encounter a surge of interest in their star players following their ascent to the top of the Bundesliga standings. While Wirtz may opt to remain steadfast, numerous other players will likely have a chance to depart.

Right-back Jeremie Frimpong, who has contributed nine goals and ten assists, recently expressed his enthusiasm about a potential move to Liverpool, describing it as “great”.
