FC Bayern is pushing ahead with its transfer plans. A 16-year-old striker is expected to be the third purchase this winter. The teenager is considered the sports director’s dream player. A decision on another change could be made by Thursday.

According to media reports, FC Bayern Munich is signing the talented Swedish striker Jonah Kusi-Asare. According to Sky, the 16-year-old is coming from AIK Solna for a single-digit million sum in the mid-range. The attacker is said to be an “absolute dream player” for Bayern sporting director Christoph Freund. Above all, it would be an investment in the future. Kusi-Asare will train with the professionals, but will initially be deployed with the U19s.

Signing the young Swede would not be a reaction to winger Kingsley Coman’s injury. Coman tore an inner ligament in his knee at the weekend and will be out for a long time.

Despite being only 16 years old, Kusi-Asare is already 1.96 meters tall, has his strengths in heading the ball and is considered a classic penalty area striker. He has already played four professional games for his club Solna in the Swedish first division.

In England, meanwhile, there is speculation about another move from the island to FC Bayern. According to “The Athletic”, the German football record champions are said to be interested in English youth international Jacob Ramsey from Aston Villa. In addition to Munich, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur are also interested in the defensive midfielder.

Coman’s injury could cause movement

So far this winter, the Munich team has signed two players for defense. At the weekend, Bayern announced the arrival of French full-back Sacha Boey. The 23-year-old comes from Turkish champions Galatasaray Istanbul and signed a contract until June 30, 2028. He may be part of Munich’s squad for the first time at the home game against Borussia Mönchengladbach at the weekend.

Boey was primarily used as a right-back in Turkey. After English defender Eric Dier (Tottenham Hotspur), he is the second winter signing for coach Thomas Tuchel and his team. Dier was in the starting line-up for the first time in the 3-2 win against Augsburg.

With these two additions to the sparse defense, the Munich team had actually completed their winter planning. Coman’s injury may bring new movement into considerations. The club has already announced the arrival of Spanish offensive jewel Bryan Zaragoza from Granada FC for the summer.
