Bayern Munich have been heavily linked with German players, but which player is most likely to end up at the club?
There is the elephant in the room of the COVID-19 virus that has completely halted the soccer world. This suspension is potentially going to affect some major financial decisions regarding transfers. However, let us discuss transfers for Bayern Munich in summer if normality resumes by July 1st.
In recent years, Bayern Munich have been forced to revitalize their squad due to several players retiring and getting on the wrong side of 30. The board needed statement signings last summer, and they managed to do that to an extent.
The team brought in defenders Benjamin Pavard, Lucas Hernandez, and Jann Fiete Arp on permanent transfers, while Philippe Coutinho and Ivan Perisic on one-year loans with the option to buy. These loans were only stop-gap measures to get the team through the next year until they could take make permanent transfers in those positions in the summer of 2020.
Well, the summer of 2020 is upon everyone, and Bayern have not escaped the rumor mill when it comes to transfers. The positions in which Bayern signed players on loan were in the attacking areas, so naturally, most reports have been about attackers.

Those players are winger Leroy Sane from Manchester City, attacking midfielder Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen, and center forward Timo Werner from RB Leipzig. This article will look at why each player is linked to Bayern and then conclude on who or whom the team should sign.
