Bayern Munich are looking to replenish all the outfield areas of the squad in the summer. The trophyless campaign has forced Bayern’s hands to consider a squad overhaul. Bayern scored freely this season, but they may still end up adding two players in this area of the squad.

In the wide position, the futures of Kingsley Coman and Serge Gnabry are up in the air. Gnabry has struggled for consistency in the last two seasons, while Coman is reportedly open to a new adventure in his career. Bayern will not stand in their way if adequate offers are made for both wingers.

Die Roten are looking to add a wide player to the squad in the summer, irrespective of what happens with Gnabry and Coman. They are exploring several options in the market to strengthen the wide areas of the attack. The Bavarian club is the latest top European club to show interest in one of the exciting wingers in La Liga.

According to Relevo, Bayern are one of several clubs showing strong interest in Athletic Bilbao’s Nico Williams. The 21-year-old winger is highly rated by Bayern as they consider him part of their shortlist for the summer transfer window. Athletic Bilbao will not negotiate a fee for him as they want the release clause worth €60 million to be paid for the Spaniard if an interested club wants to sign him this summer.

Williams has been in fine form for Athletic Bilbao this season. He managed 11 assists and five goals in 31 La Liga appearances. The Spanish winger is creative in the final third with his dribbling and crossing. He can play on either flank, making him a tactically flexible forward. Despite having a productive season, Nico Williams’ best is yet to come. He will be a fine long-term signing for Bayern.

Relevo also confirmed Bayern’s interest in RB Leipzig’s Dani Olmo. Fabrizio Romano had previously reported that Olmo featured in Bayern’s shortlist for the summer transfer window. Olmo’s team-mate Xavi Simons has also been linked with a move to Munich in the past few days.

VfB Stuttgart’s Chris Führich has been heavily linked with Bayern this season. The German winger reportedly prefers a move to Bavaria over Borussia Dortmund. Going by recent reports, Bayern have identified good targets to strengthen the attack. It will be intriguing to see how much money they have allocated for a winger. If the budget is less, they can move for Führich. With a bigger budget, they can move for one of Simons/Olmo/Williams to strengthen the attack.
