Bayern Munich eyeing move for €35m-rated Chelsea anchorman

By | August 12, 2020

German champions Bayern Munich are reportedly lining up a double raid on the Premier League for French midfield pair Tiemoue Bakayoko and Tanguy Ndombele.

The German champions are keen to strengthen their midfield area this summer ahead of the expected exits of Javi Martinez, Corentin Tolliso and Thiago Alcantara.

Le 10 Sport reports that the Spurs Ndombele and Chelsea flop Bakayoko are two of the names on their list of possible transfer target this summer.

Ndombele’s future has come under scrutiny following an alleged bust-up with head-coach Jose Mourinho, although the North London club would be keen to recoup most, if not all, of the club-record £55m they spent to secure the services of him just last summer.

One way around that hefty fee could be a loan deal, which the Bavarians have utilised to bring in Philippe Coutinho and James Rodriguez from Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively recently.

Bayern could also make a loan bid for Bakayoko, who is believed to have a price tag on his head around at €35m (£31.4m), however, it is deemed surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge and spent the 2019-20 season on loan at Ligue 1 club AS Monaco.

Bayern could face competition for Bakayoko, though, with AC Milan and PSG are keen on to sign him.
