Bayern Munich are pushing ahead with their summer transfer plans and have reportedly set their sights on a striking option in the form of Eintracht Frankfurt’s Randal Kolo Muani. According to Sky Sports Deutschland, the Bundesliga champions feel that 34-year-old striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is too injury prone and they also believe that 17-year-old Mathys Tel needs time to develop.
The move for Kolo Muani would be a step back in terms of age, as the 19 year old has only made three appearances for Eintracht Frankfurt’s first team since making his debut early last year. However, he has become one of the most sought after young talents in Germany, having scored 15 goals and assisted five more in 24 games for Eintracht Frankfurt U19s. Kolo Muani’s development could be further accelerated by his potential move to Bayern Munich, which is known for developing players with incredible precision and professionalism. With Kingsley Coman, Alphonso Davies and Javi Martinez as proof of what kind of players can come out of their academy system, Kolo Muani joining Bayern Munich could be a spectacular prospect. His physical prowess combined with his technical ability make him an exciting prospect who has certainly caught the eye of many European clubs this season.
The German champions are no strangers to swooping up talent from other clubs either, having signed Manuel Neuer from Schalke in 2011 while poaching David Alaba from Hoffenheim back in 2010. It would not be surprising if Kolo Muani ends up being Bayern Munich’s next great player and it could prove to be a very smart move if they manage to successfully complete the transfer before any other club does. Of course, there are still some obstacles that need to be overcome before any talks between Bayern Munich and Eintracht Frankfurt can begin. Both clubs will need to agree on a fee for the talented youngster first before anything else can happen but it seems like negotiations have already begun between both parties and it may not take long until an agreement is reached over Kolo Muani’s future.
Should everything go according to plan, fans of both teams will look forward to seeing this exciting prospect link up with Bayern Munich at some point next season while donning either a Bayern Munich jersey or an Eintracht Frankfurt jersey depending on where he plays his football next season.
