Germany are set to host the European Championship this summer, seeking to put a disappointing World Cup behind them.

It’s all change for the national team with Hansi Flick long gone and the former Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann now in charge.

Recent signs have been encouraging for Germany, scoring recent friendly wins over France and the Netherlands, and they will be heading into their home tournament in a lot better shape than only a few months ago.

Possessed of some of the best individual talent of any squad at the Euros, Germany will have plenty of interested clubs watching their performances.

Uncertainty around Bayern’s plans long-term could mean big moves on the horizon for some of their stars and there is also emerging young talent that is just too hard to ignore.

Here we look at FIVE Germany players set to go to the Euros who could make a move this summer.

Jonathan Tah

Jonathan Tah is out of contract at Bayer Leverkusen in 2025 and talks have been shelved until the end of the season.

Leverkusen chief Simon Rolfes would like to keep Tah at the club long term, as they head back to the Champions League and into the European elite under Xabi Alonso, but so far there are no guarantees over his future.

A strong end to the season, starting with a Europa League quarter-final against West Ham, and a strong showing at Euro 2024 could see Tah’s price driven up and Leverkusen might well seek to cash in.

Tah would be keen to listen to offers should any materialise from a top-six Premier League club as he holds a wish to test himself at that level.

Having spent nine years at the club, making over 300 appearances, signing off with a potential treble might well be the perfect way to say goodbye.

Joshua Kimmich

Champions League winner Joshua Kimmich has reportedly made it clear that there are only five teams he would be willing to leave Bayern Munich for, should the Bavarians decide to cut him loose at the end of the season.

Those clubs are Real Madrid, Barcelona, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City.

Kimmich, 29, and Bayern have been engaged in a contract standoff all season with the midfielder’s terms expiring in 2025 and no breakthrough being made over a new deal.

It’s been reported that Kimmich, one of the top earners, would like a pay rise but the club are not willing to entertain those demands.

The versatile midfielder-cum-full-back will be an integral component for the Nationalmannschaft on home soil this summer, albeit at right back, and a good display there could encourage interested sides to open the chequebook.

Jamal Musiala

Bayern intend to build their side of the future around Jamal Musiala, with new sporting director Max Eberl this week declaring the 21-year-old “unsellable”.

With the former Chelsea youth team player out of contract in 2026, however, Bayern might instead be forced into an uncomfortable reckoning.

Although there are reports of a monster contract offer in the works for Musiala, it has been speculated that he would one day like to test himself in the Premier League.

Bayern will want to guard against losing their star playmaker for nothing and if the signs point towards Musiala not renewing then expect him to be put up for sale.

One of Europe’s elite creators, Musiala will not be short of Premier League suitors with Chelsea and Manchester City among those dreaming of landing him.

Nagelsmann, meanwhile, has given increased importance to him in the German attack and if the hosts are going to go far at the Euros then Musiala is going to have a big say.

Florian Wirtz

The centrepiece of Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen attack, Florian Wirtz is destined for great things. The 20-year-old scored his first international goal during the recent break, netting after only seven seconds in a friendly against France.

Having made a full recovery from his cruciate ligament tear, the creative force is ready to play an instrumental role for Nagelsmann’s side at the Euros.

And Leverkusen know the talent they have got on their hands.

Barely a week goes by without Wirtz being linked with a move to the Premier League with increasing noise about a transfer to Liverpool.

He won’t come cheap, with a contract until 2027, and he could opt to remain for another season now that Alonso has committed his future to the BayArena outfit.

However, a bid of €100m + could swiftly alter the club’s thinking about a player who has contributed 11 goals and 17 assists in all competitions this term.

Leroy Sane

Another superstar with a contract which is ticking down, 28-year-old winger Leroy Sane’s terms run out at Bayern in 2025.

The former Manchester City winger started the season in terrific form for Bayern and has scored nine times overall, providing 12 assists, in all competitions.

However there is considerable uncertainty over his long-term future and he has been struggling for form and fitness recently.

With Liverpool seeking a successor to Mohamed Salah, there is the possibility of Sane arriving at Anfield to take up the Egyptian’s right-wing station.

Barcelona have also been linked with his signature but with Lamine Yamal set to star at Camp Nou for the next decade or more there is little call for Sane’s arrival for now.

Sane missed recent matches against France and the Netherlands owing to a three-match international suspension and manager Nagelsmann has recently made noise that the attacker needs to integrate in the national team setup.

While Sane is a favourite to go to the Euros, he will need a fine end to the season in order to nail down a starting place ahead of Wirtz and Musiala.
