Coach Thomas Tuchel wants to find Bayern Munich a number 6 in the summer market of 2023. Die Roten wanted to recruit Declan Rice but they quickly gave up when they could not meet the huge fee from West Ham United.
With the Bundesliga champions having welcomed Harry Kane, now is the time to restart their plan to buy a holding midfielder to complete the squad. Fulham’s Joao Palhinha is noticed by Bayern. In addition, a name that once made the Premier League feverish when it had time to reach the sights of Manchester United or Chelsea, Wilfred Ndidi of Leicester City is also a target for the German club to keep an eye on.
However, in the context of unopened deals, Ndidi’s representative Franjo Vranjkovic soon denied the possibility of the client coming to the Allianz Arena. Specifically, a source from MiaSanMia shared:
“We have had favorable talks with the Bayern leadership, mainly with Mr. Jan-Christian Dreesen. However, the final decision has been made. Ndidi will not become a rookie midfielder at Bayern“.
Ndidi’s contract with Leicester runs until June 2024. Liverpool and Nottingham Forest have expressed interest in the Nigerian.
