The January transfer market has closed but the Premier League rumor mill is already spinning ahead of the summer season. Luca Netz, a teenage left-back for Borussia Mönchengladbach has emerged as a potential possibility. At only 20 years old, Netz has piqued the interest of numerous prominent English clubs, including Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Newcastle United. This article investigates the causes of the rapid rise in interest and what Netz could bring to these Premier League clubs.

A Rising Star Luca Netz in the Bundesliga

Netz rose through the youth ranks at Hertha BSC before joining Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2021. He immediately acclimated to the Bundesliga becoming a regular starter in his debut season. Netz impressed with his offensive abilities contributing three assists in his debut season. This season he has continued to improve cementing his position as Gladbach’s first-choice left-back. His offensive efforts remain a highlight with three assists this season.

The Specific Needs of the Interested Clubs

Arsenal: Kieran Tierney has been Arsenal’s undisputed left-back for several seasons. However, injuries have been a recurring concern for the Scotsman. Signing Netz would provide much-needed competition and depth at left back ensuring consistency even when Tierney is unavailable. Additionally, Netz’s attacking style aligns with Mikel Arteta’s philosophy of playing attacking full backs.

Manchester United: There has been unrest at Manchester United’s left back position. Luke Shaw’s injuries and Alex Telles‘ patchy performance have exposed this area’s weaknesses. The new manager Erik ten Hag is well-known for favoring aggressive fullbacks. Netz would be a great fit in this role offering both defensive stability and offensive vigor.

Chelsea: Ben Chilwell remains Chelsea’s first-choice left-back but injuries have hampered his availability. Signing Netz would provide much-needed cover and competition. Moreover with Marcos Alonso nearing the twilight of his career Luca Netz could be a long-term solution for the left flank.

Newcastle United: Eddie Howe’s Newcastle project is ambitious and they are actively looking to strengthen their squad in all areas. Left-back is a position that needs addressing. Matt Ritchie is aging and Jamal Lewis is still inexperienced. Netz would be a significant upgrade offering both defensive stability and attacking threat.

The Competition and Potential Transfer Fee

The interest from several Premier League clubs suggests that a bidding war could ensue for Luca Netz’s signature. However, Borussia Mönchengladbach is in a strong negotiating position. Netz’s contract runs until 2026 and the German club is likely to demand a significant fee. Transfermarkt estimates his market value to be around €10 million but with the interest he has garnered a fee closer to €20 million seems more realistic.


Luca Netz’s rapid rise in the Bundesliga has not gone unnoticed. His attacking flair, defensive solidity and young age make him a highly sought-after prospect. While Borussia Mönchengladbach will fight to keep him the lure of the Premier League and the chance to play for a top club could be tempting. Whichever club wins the race for his signature will be acquiring a talented young player with the potential to become a star in the Premier League for years to come.
