The majority of the transfer talk related to Bayern Munich in recent few weeks involved attacking players. The defending Bundesliga champions are expected to spend heavily on at least one forward next summer. Numerous strikers and forwards will be consistently linked with a move to Bavaria.

Recently, Calciomercato in Italy reported that Bayern might sign one of the most promising German talents from Borussia Dortmund next summer. Exciting forward Youssoufa Moukoko’s contract at Dortmund expires next summer, so he will be heavily linked with other clubs if BVB fails to extend his deal.

As per Sport1, it is highly unlikely for Bayern to make a move for Moukoko in the summer. The Bavarian club is planning to add an experienced striker instead of signing a prospect. They have already signed young attacking talent last summer in the form of Mattys Tel.

Dortmund is likely to do everything possible to extend the contract of Moukoko. He regularly features for the first team and recently scored the winner in the derby against Schalke. The youngster is going to get better with time, so Dortmund will be desperate to secure his contract extension.

From Moukoko’s point of view, it doesn’t make sense to consider a move to Die Roten. His playing time at the senior level will drastically reduce due to intense competition for places in the starting XI. The teenager will be better served by staying a few more years at Borussia Dortmund.

Meanwhile, Bayern needs a proper number nine to bolster the attack next summer. Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has emerged as the top target for Die Roten. The English striker fits the bill to lead the line for Bayern. It is a very difficult deal to complete since Spurs are tough negotiators, and they want to keep Kane at the club.

Apart from Kane, Bayern may look to add one more midfielder to the squad. RB Leipzig’s Konrad Laimer was Die Roten’s summer target, but Leipzig rejected all three bids from the Bavarian club. The record Bundesliga champions may eventually sign Laimer on a free transfer in the next summer transfer window.

A replacement for Benjamin Pavard could also become an area to address for Die Roten next summer. The French defender has started the season well, but he is unsure about signing a new deal in Bavaria. Die Roten will have to cash in next summer if he refuses to sign a new deal with the current contract expiring in 2024.
