​Bayer Leverkusen determined to keep Arsenal, Man Utd target Wirtz

Bayer Leverkusen do not fear losing youngster Florian Wirtz.

The 18-year-old has emerged as an impressive talent in the Bundesliga, while media reports linked him to the Bundesliga champions recently.

Wirtz is an attacking midfielder who has managed four goals and four assists in five Bundesliga appearances so far this term.

However, the player's father says that his son Florian wants to stay at Leverkusen for at least another two years.

Hans-Joachim said to BILD: "Florian definitely wants to play a good role in Leverkusen for the next two years. What comes next is not yet known.

"His focus is now only on Bayer and the national team."

The Germany international was linked to Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Arsenal, reported Spanish outlet AS.
