Paul Wanner is one of the success stories of the loan system at Bayern Munich. The highly-rated attacking midfielder has enjoyed a productive loan spell at SV Elversberg. Die Roten want the youngster to take the next step in his development by going out on loan for another season.

Wanner will attract significant interest from several clubs in Europe since he is highly rated in his age group. The latest update from the German media does suggest that Wanner may end up playing in the Eredivisie next season.

According to Sky Sports in Germany, PSV Eindhoven have shown concrete interest in signing Paul Wanner on loan from Bayern. The Bavarian club has received several inquiries for Wanner, but PSV have shown the most concrete interest in the attacking midfielder.

A move to PSV will be the ideal next step for Wanner. They managed to give adequate playing time to Malik Tillman this season, which eventually led to a permanent transfer for the forward. PSV may try to include an option to buy Wanner, but Bayern may hold firm since they consider him to be part of their long-term plans.

Die Roten are expecting Wanner to challenge for game time in the first team when he returns from his second loan spell in 2025. Thomas Muller is expected to leave Die Roten by the end of the next season, which may open up more opportunities for Wanner in the first team.

The Bavarian club will look to make a definitive decision regarding Wanner sooner rather than later, which will allow him to complete the pre-season training with the new club. In an ideal scenario, a deal with PSV or another interested club will be finalized by the end of June.

Apart from Wanner, Alexander Nubel and Frans Kratzig were other successful loanees from Bayern Munich. Nubel helped VfB Stuttgart finish second in the Bundesliga. He was one of the best goalkeepers in the division. Die Roten believe Nubel can be Manuel Neuer’s long-term replacement. They extended Nubel’s contract until 2029 and agreed a deal with Stuttgart to keep him on loan for two more seasons.

Meanwhile, Kratzig has been playing consistently for Austria Wein since leaving Bayern on loan in January. He has scored once and assisted thrice in 15 appearances for the Austrian club. With game time difficult to come by for Kratzig in Munich next season, Bayern may look to send him out on loan in the summer. (Stats courtesy- Transfermarkt)
