Bayern Munich have reportedly set aside €100 million to bring a new striker to the Allianz Arena this summer and could turn to Napoli’s Victor Osimhen to fill their striker void.

The Bavarians parted ways with club-record goalscorer Robert Lewandowski last summer and brought in Sadio Mane, who now finds himself in a complicated situation after his alleged split with teammate Leroy Sane after the Champions League quarterfinal against Manchester City.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting has improved admirably in the absence of another recognized senior forward, with 17 goals in 28 appearances in all competitions this season. But Bayern are keen to bring a more permanent solution to the club as soon as possible and according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Osimhen is among the top candidates on their wish list. However, while Bayern have set aside a nine-figure sum to spend on a new striker, there could still be a disparity between that and Napoli’s asking price for Osimhen. There has already been interest from Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain, who have reportedly been told by Aurelio De Laurentiis that the offer for the Nigerian striker would start at around 150 million euros.
