Stuttgart star Benjamin Pavard has denied reports suggesting he has agreed a deal to join Bayern Munich amid links with Liverpool and Spurs.

Both the Reds and Tottenham are apparently keen to snap up French World Cup winner in a £35m deal.

The Daily Mirror recently claimed that Liverpool are monitoring the 22-year’s progress, with a clause in his Stuttgart contract allowing him to leave next summer for €40m should the Bundesliga side fail to qualify for the Champions League.

Reports had suggested that an agreement was in place for him to join Bayern Munich in 2019, but the player insists this is not the case.

“I did not sign anything at all (with Bayern). You are the journalists who say that I signed (for Bayern),” he told L’Equipe.

“I’m in Stuttgart, I’m fine there. My career plan was to stay one more season in Germany. I am in a very big German club, with fantastic fans. This club is a family, that’s what I need and that’s what I like about this club. I’m very good there.

“It’s true that the World Cup came faster than expected, nobody expected it, not even me at the very beginning.”
