In the search for a new right-back, Bayern Munich have apparently struck gold in England. In the past few days, reports have been circulating that the record champions are interested in Middlesbrough talent Djed Spence. According to „Sky“, Bayern are pushing for the 21-year-old youngster.
After Omar Richards, will the next English second division player move to Bayern? As „Sky“ reports, Djed Spence of FC Middlesbrough has been on Bayern’s radars for quite a while. The Bayern scouts see the fullback as the next Alphonso Davies – but this time as the right-back.
Spence, therefore, fits perfectly into Bayern’s profile: The 21-year-old is a player with potential for development who, like Davies, is very skillful, is flashy and pacy. Spence also has a certain physique that Bayern seems to like. The player would also cost 10 to 15 million euros.
Negotiations will start soon
According to reports, Bayern have already registered their interest to the player’s management. According to Sky, the transfer is slowly picking up speed. As a result, Bayern would like to commence the first concrete talks with the player’s entourage at the end of March.
‚Sky‘ reports that the right-back is quite open to a transfer to the German record champions and wants to make a breakthrough in Munich. The youngster sees a kind of role model in Alphonso Davies. The Canadian joined Bayern three years ago and has since developed into an absolute regular player and a top performer in Munich. Many young players at Bayern and those who come from the outside, are looking up to Davies.
