Bayern Munich join the hunt for Aston Villa prodigy Carney Chukwuemeka

When it comes to the transfer market, Bayern are simply one of the best in the business.

The reports in England and Germany suggested that Bayern Munich have joined the hunt for Aston Villa midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka.

The England international joined Aston Villa from Northampton in March 2016.

The midfielder has featured in 11 Premier League 2 matches for Aston Villa this term, providing one assist.

The 17-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in England.

Bayern are looking to sign a midfielder and have identified the 17-year-old as potential transfer target.

Hans-Dieter Flick has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe.

Chukwuemeka is a skilled midfielder who can make a difference at both ends of the pitch.

According to the report, “Bayern Munich are keeping tabs on Aston Villa midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka. The 17 year-old England youth international is regarded amongst the brightest talents of his generation. Manchester United have been linked with the teen, while Fussball Transfers says Bayern are also keen. Chukwuemeka signed a three-year pro contract in October, but that hasn’t put off his suitors. Last year, Villa chief exec Christian Purslow described Chukwuemeka as “probably the best 16-year-old in all of England”.


Bayern will have to present a really enticing offer to bring Aston Villa to the negotiating table. The German giants have the resources to tempt them but it will be interesting to see if they are willing to overpay for the player.

Aston Villa would be wise to keep the England international, but if they do let him go expect it to be for a hefty sum.

Good signing for Bayern Munich?

It is smart from the club to invest in younger players, rather than splashing out big money on experienced players with no resale value.

Chukwuemeka is still quite young and he will only get better with experience. He would be a good long term investment for Bayern.

How strong that interest is and whether Bayern Munich will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
