When Bayern Munich set their eyes on a player, more often than not, they force their way into getting him. This time they have set their sights on Carney Chukwuemeka, and the club are working hard to cut a deal with Aston Villa for the midfielder.
The latest reports in England suggest that Bayern Munich are frontrunners to land Aston Villa midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka.
The 17-year-old’s contract at Aston Villa is set to expire at the end of the 2022/23 campaign.
The midfielder has banged in 7 goals and provided 5 assists in 22 matches for Villa this term on all fronts.
The 17-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in England.
Chukwuemeka has represented England at Under-17 and Under-18 level, winning four caps.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Bayern.
Bayern Munich are looking to sign a midfielder and have identified the 17-year-old as potential transfer target. They have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
The German giants will have funds to spend in the market and it will be interesting to see how they approach the summer transfer window.
The Premier League player is highly talented and he has a big future ahead of himself. His arrival would give Bayern some much needed tactical flexibility.
According to the report, “Aston Villa youngster Carney Chukwuemeka is being linked with a move to Bayern Munich. The 17-year-old is a target for the German champions, per Football Insider. Villa boss Dean Smith says he has a plan to mould the teenager into a first team star. However, Chukwuemeka’s future at the club is in doubt, with several top clubs after his signature. Bayern, Manchester City and Liverpool are the three highest profile teams interested, with Bayern the favourites to complete the transfer.”
