The Bayern Munich winger has revealed he is trying to convince the midfielder to join the German national team instead of the Three Lions.

Bayern Munich winger Serge Gnabry is hopeful that his young team-mate, Jamal Musiala will choose to represent his national side, Germany, instead of the Three Lions.

Musiala who is still only 17-years-old joined the Bundesliga champions from English Premier League side Chelsea back in 2019 and has since risen up the ranks before making his full senior debut for Hansi Flick’s side last season.

Musiala has appeared 16 times for Bayern Munich this campaign and has managed to score three Bundesliga goals. The midfielder’s impressive performances have caught the eye of Gnabry and the Bayern winger is hopeful that Musiala chooses Germany and not England when he finally decides his international future.

Gnabry spoke to The Daily Mail and was asked about Musiala’s upcoming decision.

“Ain’t no chance we’re letting that talent go! I’m trying my best [to get him for Germany]. He’s a great, great player,” Gnabry said.

“The first couple of times he showed up in training we already knew he was going to be a superb player.

“His talent is amazing. He isn’t shy of anything. He has a lot of time on his hands and I hope he will continue to grow, and use his talents for Germany instead of England – to my benefit!.”

Bayern currently sits top of the Bundesliga; two points clear of RB Leipzig in second and Hansi Flick’s side are looking to repeat the success they had last season when they won the treble.

They will also fancy themselves to progress to the next stage of the DFB Pokal when they play Holstein Kiel next up. The current European champions are also odds on to get past Lazio in their Champions League tie and Gnabry says that another European crown is the goal.

“Obviously the Champions League, is the whole of Europe and a thing which every kid dreams about growing up,” Gnabry added.

“To have lifted it, to have won it is a feeling that I don’t think you can even describe to people because you are just so happy and so overwhelmed with emotions that you finally achieved this.
