Bayern Munich are seriously considering a move for Juventus’ out-of-form striker Dusan Vlahovic.
The Bavarians are looking for a long-term replacement for the goals once provided by Robert Lewandowski, who left for Barcelona last summer for $48m. Former Paris Saint Germain Erik-Maxim Choupo-Moting has filled in manfully for a season whilst the Bayern hierarchy recruit the right man to fill the Polish captain’s shoes but the Cameroonian’s 10 league goals this season are not seen to be enough to take the Bundesliga champions to the next level.
Dusan Vlahovic to swap Italy for Germany?
According to Sky Sports Germany reporter Florian Plettenberg, Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel is reportedly been “raving about” Vlahovic despite a difficult season at Juventus which has seen the Serb only hit 10 goals this season, compared to his 24 last.

At 23, it is believed that the best of Vlahovic is yet to come, however, and with former Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge having a good relationship with the Italian giants, a summer move could well be on the cards.
