After completing the signing of Sven Ulreich in July, Bayern Munich has been quiet in the transfer window. However, the German Champions remain attentive to the market in case a good opportunity comes up to improve the squad. The reports in France and Germany on Monday suggest that Die Roten wants to add a young winger to the squad.

According to RMC (via GFFN), Bayern has been silently working on a deal to sign Amine Adli from Toulouse. The young winger was one of the best players in Ligue 2 last season. The report from the French outlet insists that Die Roten has explained a detailed career plan to Adli as he will initially start as a fourth-choice winger in the squad.

The report from RMC has been backed by Sky Sports in Germany. The broadcaster in Germany reports that Adli has agreed terms with Die Roten. The French winger has already rejected an offer from Wolfsburg, while Borussia Dortmund is also interested in the winger.

Rekordmeister will not have to break the bank for the winger since he has only one year left on his current deal at Toulouse. The German club will have to negotiate a fee with Toulouse to add the young winger to the squad.

Adli had a breakthrough campaign with Toulouse last season as he ended up with eight goals and seven assists in Ligue 2. The 21-year-old can play anywhere across the front three. Since he is a left-footed player, he is likely to be a much better goal threat when deployed on the right flank. (Stats courtesy: Transfermarkt)

Signing Adli will be a shrewd move for Die Roten. The German club has been looking to add a young winger for two years in a row after failing to reach an agreement with Callum Hudson-Odoi last summer. Adli ticks all boxes, and most importantly, he will not cost a lot of money due to his contract situation.

Die Roten will have to make sure that Adli gets decent playing time next season to continue his development. The German club perfectly managed the playing time of Jamal Musiala last season. A similar approach will be needed to polish the rough edges of Adli’s game.

At the end of last week, few reports suggested that Franck Ribery could make a sensational return to the club. However, Bild reported on Monday that Hasan Salihamidzic is not sure about bringing the veteran winger back to Bavaria. It does look like the club’s sporting director has different plans for a new winger, which could serve short and long-term purposes.
