FC Bayern could also reorganise its attack in the upcoming summer transfer window. Recently, there has been speculation about a change in system with a possible double centre forward. Now the German record champions are once again being linked with a star striker from the French Ligue 1.

For many years, FC Bayern has played with a single clear centre-forward. In the past, this was Robert Lewandowski, for example, and currently it is Harry Kane. In the future, however, there could apparently be a change in system.

Those in charge are thinking about a possible double centre forward. Sporting director Max Eberl revealed this in an interview with Sport BILD: „Bayern Munich stands for offence, for goals. That’s why we’re thinking about a second number 9, of course. We don’t yet know whether we might play with a double centre-half,“ he explained.

In this case, the question would arise as to who could play alongside Harry Kane in the future. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s contract expires in the summer. It is currently considered likely that Bayern will extend the attacker’s contract. Will they rely fully on youngster Mathys Tel in future or will they sign a new striker?

Eberl said: „In Mathys Tel, we have a striker who can play in the centre. We can’t yet say whether he will play there permanently one day. This season, he’s played a lot on the wing and had a big impact there.“

Bayern after David again?

If Bayern are indeed on the lookout for a striker, a player who has often been linked with a move to the Isar in the past could become an issue: Jonathan David from OSC Lille.

As the Spanish portal fichajes.net reports, the French first division club are already rubbing their hands together. The paper surmises that a transfer of the 24-year-old could bring the fourth-placed team in Ligue 1 around 50 million euros.

David has scored 22 goals and provided seven assists in 37 competitive appearances this season. The Canadian international’s contract runs until the summer of 2025 and his market value is €50 million, according to transfermarkt.de.
