The Bundesliga giants will be without Dayot Upamecano for a few weeks, after the Frenchman was forced to withdraw from the squad due to a hamstring injury, while Matthijs de Ligt is also struggling with a knee problem.
Young talent Tarek Buchmann also had to sit out due to a muscle tear. Therefore, summer rookie Kim Min-jae is the only central defender available to coach Thomas Tuchel.
Bayern intended to make a move to recruit former player Jerome Boateng but was ultimately rejected because of fan opposition even though he trained with the team earlier this month.
Most recently, Sky Germany reported that the former Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund defender, Sokratis is an option being considered by Bayern.
The Greek international has become a free agent since leaving Olympiacos in the summer of 2023. Surely Sokratis will take the opportunity to join the German champions and turn down an offer from Real Betis.
Tuchel is said to be a big fan of Sokratis and worked with the Greek defender while coaching Dortmund.
Sokratis spent two and a half difficult years at Arsenal before his contract was terminated in January 2021.
