While the transfer speculation regarding Bayern Munich on Friday majorly revolved around Alexander Nubel, the club also confirmed the departure of Jann-Fiete Arp. The young German forward has gone out on loan to Holstein Kiel for one season.

The German forward has struggled to establish himself at Die Roten after arriving in Bavaria during the summer transfer window in 2019. Despite going on a pre-season tour under Niko Kovac, Arp failed to get game time for the first time during the 2019/20 campaign. He is going out on loan after making just one senior appearance for Rekordmeister.

Injuries troubled Arp during his first season. During the second campaign, he was involved with the reserved team. His performances for the reserves team also dipped, making it even more difficult to break into first-team plans.

Considering the high wages of Arp, a permanent transfer did look difficult this summer. A loan move gives him a chance to get back to his best. Moreover, a change of scenery will help him finally kickstart his development and fulfill the potential that he showed during his time at Hamburg.

More from Bayern Strikes

Rekordmeister will be hoping that Arp comes back as a much better player from this loan spell. He is unlikely to have a long-term future at the club, but a good loan spell will make sure that another Bundesliga club will come up with a good offer for him.

Not every youngster hits the ground after arriving at Bayern. Some tend to find their feet away from the club. Unfortunately, Arp has endured a similar scenario. After impressing at Hamburg, he has lost his way at Die Roten. A move away from the club this summer is exactly what he needs to kickstart his stalled career. In a lesser-pressure environment at Holstein Kiel, Arp could find back his mojo.

Bayern has few more loan decisions to make this summer

Apart from Arp and Nubel, Die Roten has multiple decisions to make about young players this summer. It does look like Adrian Fein will leave the club permanently. He had a poor loan spell at PSV Eindhoven last season. Since he has two years left on his current deal, Rekordmeister could cash in this summer.

Meanwhile, Mickael Cuisance is looking to break into first-team plans at Die Roten after a poor loan spell at Marseille. Lukas Mai and Chris Richards may also go out on loan once again next season, while Christian Fruchtl is likely to stay in Bavaria after suffering a serious injury.
