Could Bayern Munich have their eyes on Chelsea FC’s Hakim Ziyech? A report outside Spain

Bayern Munich have now entered the race to sign Chelsea playmaker Hakim Ziyech. Ziyech often struggled to find consistency in his performances at Chelsea, which made Thomas Tuchel not always able to provide him with consistent minutes. Something that Bayern say left the door open for them to show interest in him.

According to Fichajes, Ziyech would welcome a move away from Chelsea due to his erratic playing time, with the 28-year-old having only completed a full Premier League game three times in his nine starts. He also made four secondary appearances.

The Bavarians are said to be very grateful for the quality of the Moroccan’s left foot, as evidenced by his Candidate of the Season goal against Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge last Sunday.

Ziyech was linked with Bayern Munich before moving to Chelsea, but a move now seems like a long shot.

I can’t argue with Rudi Völler about this:

Robert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland are the absolute cream of the crop and Patrik Schick is getting better and better. It’s a pretty awesome trio to watch week after week.

There may not be a game for Bayern Munich this weekend, but it has been an extremely turbulent time nonetheless.

The news certainly wasn’t the best if you’re a Niklas Süle fan, so examining the fallout from his planned departure is high on this week’s agenda. Here is what we offer for this episode:

  • Niklas Süle’s next outing and a presentation of the best candidates to replace him. Will it be Matthias de Ligt, Nico Schlotterbeck, Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen or Matthias Ginter? Or “maybe it’s something really cool that I don’t even know” as Frank the Tank said in Old school.
  • Could Bayern Munich have a legitimate chance to get Erling Haaland if Robert Lewandowski leaves?
  • Alexander Nübel’s future at Bayern Munich depends on how long Manuel Neuer’s contract extension lasts.
  • Why the FC Bayern: behind the legend documentary was terrific, painful, authentic – and ultimately well done – all at the same time.

Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst is reportedly on his way to Burnley.

Wolfsburg is a disaster, so it would be hard to harass Weghorst for his deployment. Good luck to the Dutch.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the transfer of Denis Zakaria could depend on the transfer of Rodrigo Betancur to Tottenham Hotspur:

It looks like that deal for Zakaria will be done, but time is running out.
