Bayern Munich has far-reaching interest in Eintracht Frankfurt striker Kolo Muani. The German giant wants to attract a new striker this summer and the French international is one of the main contenders to fill that position. Napoli’s Victor Osimhen is also mentioned at Bayern, but the Napoli striker is a much more expensive signing than Muani.
Bayern sold Robert Lewandowski last summer and decided not to bring back a direct replacement. The club now regret their decision and that is why the German record champion wants to make his move on the transfer market next summer. Muani has been linked with a transfer for months, as the French striker has made an impression as an international for his country at the World Cup and shows weekly at Frankfurt that he is ready for a bigger challenge in his career.
Bayern’s interest is therefore not surprising. The German club likes to look at players who are doing well in the Bundesliga and have been very successful in picking up players from other German clubs in the past. Muani would therefore fit perfectly into Bayern’s picture in that regard. In addition, the Frenchman is a cheaper alternative than other top strikers such as Osimhen or Tottenham Hotspur attacker Harry Kane.
As the new head coach of Bayern, Thomas Tuchel is already looking at next season and would have indicated to the board that he is interested in signing Muani. The striker has a contract with Frankfurt until the summer of 2027 and according to rumors in Germany, the club could demand a hefty transfer fee. Yet it is still much less than the expected 100 million euros or more for Osimhen or Kane.
