According to Sport1, Bayern Munich are preparing a move for Chelsea star Kai Havertz, with the Bavarians considering a replacement for Robert Lewandowski. The Polish striker signed for Barcelona this summer after spending eight years with Bayern, contributing 416 goals.
After spending most of the summer window embroiled in a transfer saga on Robert Lewandowski, Bayern Munich eventually sold the 33-year-old striker to Barcelona. However, that only came after the club signed Sadio Mane and although the former Liverpool star is off to a good start, reports have indicated the Bavarians are still considering attacking options. They also reportedly created a shortlist with Harry Kane top of the list although no move for the Englishman has taken place.
However, Sport1 have reported that Bayern Munich are targeting another London star in the form of Kai Havertz as they believe the German would be the perfect addition to their squad. The 23-year-old endured a tough time at Stamford Bridge but has always been a constant presence in Thomas Tuchel’s squad over the past few years. This includes Tuchel’s Champions League-winning side with Havertz scoring the winning goal.
But it was the 23-year-old’s performances in Germany that piqued Bayern’s interest as the German contributed to 51 goals in 118 Bundesliga appearances. However, Sport1 further reported that chelsea might not want to part ways with Havertz, especially after already letting Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner go this summer. Despite this, Bayern are confident they can get a deal done as they believe the Blues have bigger goals in mind and could fund those moves with Havertz leaving.
