Bayern Munich has to address at least three spots in its current roster during the forthcoming summer transfer window. Die Roten is likely to be on the lookout for young, talented individuals who can assist them in meeting both long-term and short-term objectives.
Along with addressing these issues, Bayern will need to identify financially viable transfer prospects. The Bavarian club is still recovering from the pandemic’s losses over the last two seasons.
One such target on their minds is the 21-year-old Right Back Djed Spence.
Bayern Munich is apparently already in talks with Middlesbrough about signing Djed Spence this summer.
The report from Sky also confirms that Die Roten will be holding talks with representatives of Spence by the end of March.
The Boro right-back has sparked a lot of interest ahead of the next transfer window after impressing while on loan at Nottingham Forest this season.
If the German team is to achieve this deal, they must be decisive, as Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are also interested in Spence. The sporting project in Bavaria is much more attractive than Spurs and Arsenal, but Spence will be able to stay in England.
Spence, on the other hand, believes he can make a breakthrough in Munich because he looks up to Alphonso Davies as a role model. Because, the Canadian also arrived as a nobody at the German record champions at the start of 2019 and soon established himself as a vital regular player. The Englishman is a perfect fit for Munich.
Fabrizio Romano also offered his insights on the situation on his Here We Go podcast.
He said: “Djed Spence, the right-back from Middlesbrough is a very interesting player who is doing very well in England right now. I’m told Bayern Munich is really interested in Spence.
“They are looking for a right-back in the summer and Spence is one of the many names that they have on their list. It’s not agreed, so at the minute there is nothing official between the two clubs.
“But, they are in contact for this player. They are in contact, they are starting discussions.
“There are also English clubs interested in Spence, for example, Tottenham have had him on their list for many months, but at the moment nothing is progressing yet.
“But remember his name, Spence, because Bayern are very interested in him.”
Bayern Munich’s rumoured unwillingness to spend heavily could be put to the test with Spence. Aside from the transfer price, Spence’s salary will almost probably begin to rise as a result of the increased competition for the player.
