Julian Nagelsmann’s Bayern Munich are ‘optimistic’ they will sign the Austrian midfielder
According to Fabrizio Romano, a deal to bring the Austrian to Bayern was in place in July before falling through. He also claims Laimer is keen to join the German club, who are ‘optimistic’ they will complete the transfer in the summer.

In quotes carried by the Liverpool Echo, he said: ‘I’m generally a football fan. I generally like watching the Premier League. I’ve always been a Liverpool fan.
The midfielder also seemed keen on staying in Germany, though, as he explained: ‘I don’t think a club like [Bayern Munich] comes knocking every summer, it’s one of the best in the world.
‘When you’re associated with clubs like this, there’s a certain pride. But I’m more the guy who talks to people and needs a feeling that everything fits together.’
