Bayern Munich coach Thomas Tuchel didn’t get all his desired players during the last summer transfer window. With the winter transfer window now open, there is still no guarantee that all his wishes will be granted.

However, despite failing to get the transfer of defensive-midfielder Joao Paulinha from Fulham over the line at the end of the summer transfer window, and not securing a replacement for Benjamin Pavard, Bayern has been successful in terms of signing the right players.

Bayern brought in two players on free transfers. The first was Austrian midfielder Konrad Laimer from RB Leipzig; the second was Portuguese veteran Raphael Guerreiro from Dortmund.

The two big purchases over the summer were South Korea’s defensive Anchor Kim Min-jae and English star-striker Harry Kane. The Bavarian club paid close to €50 million to acquire Kim min-jae from Napoli, while Tottenham’s Chairman Daniel Levy reportedly raked in close to €100 million for Harry Kane.

Bayern also brought in Israeli goalkeeper Daniel Peretz from Maccabi Tel Aviv for €5 million to replace Yann Sommer in the squad. The Israeli goalkeeper is not graded in this piece since he has played only one game this season. Let us look at how all the outfield new signings have done for Die Roten this season.
