The final four days of the summer transfer window will not be busy for Bayern Munich. The Bavarian club is not expected to sign new players after completing five deals before the start of the season. Die Roten will be working on loan deals for young players and arranging moves for fringe players in the senior squad.

Gabriel Vidovic is expected to go out on loan to get crucial game time under his belt. According to Bild, Vidovic will be travelling to the Netherlands on Monday to complete a loan move to Vitesse. The Croatian attacking midfielder will be spending the entire season at the Dutch club to continue his development by getting first-team experience in Eredivisie.

The young attacking midfielder was not part of the first-team squad on Saturday against Borussia Monchengladbach. Vitesse has managed to beat the likes of Hertha Berlin and Monchengladbach for the signing of the young Croatian midfielder.

Gabriel Vidovic has been training with the first team throughout the preseason. He was part of matchday squads in the Bundesliga games. The youngster came on against Bochum on matchday three and provided the assist for Die Roten’s seventh goal in the game.

Vidovic is highly rated by Bayern, but he is unlikely to get consistent playing time in the first team this season. The Croatian would have gained valuable experience by training with the senior team during pre-season and the first few weeks of the season. However, he needs playing time at the senior level to accelerate his development.

Vitesse will provide Vidovic ideal platform to show his talent and polish the rough edges of his game. He is likely to make his debut for the Dutch club next weekend. Die Roten has endured a mixed record with loan moves for youngsters in the recent past, so they will be hoping that Vidovic’s move to Vitesse will be added to the list of successful loan moves.

Die Roten is also expected to announce the departure of Joshua Zirkzee this week. The Dutch forward is leaving Bavaria to join Bologna on a permanent deal. The defending Bundesliga champions have reportedly inserted a buy-back and sell-on clause in the deal.
