German champions Bayern Munich are looking to improve their squad once Robert Lewandowski finalises his move to Barcelona.
The 33-year-old is set to join the Spanish club permanently, and the two clubs have reportedly reached an agreement over the fee.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the German giants have already planned their next move in the transfer market, and they are looking to bring in the Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt.
The Dutch international is regarded as one of the best young defenders in the world, and he could be a quality long-term acquisition for Julian Nagelsmann.
De Ligt was heavily linked with a move to Spain and England before he decided to move to Italy, and it will be interesting to see if he is open to moving to the Bundesliga this summer.
The German champions are expected to submit a bid for the defender. Apparently, Juventus want a sum of around €90/100m for his services.
Although De Ligt is relatively unproven at the highest level, he has the talent and the time to justify the massive outlay in the long run.
Furthermore, Bayern Munich are determined to keep winger Serge Gnabry at the club as well.
The 26-year-old has been linked with the return to the Premier League, but it seems that the German outfit will offer him a new contract once Lewandowski’s wages are freed from the books.
In addition to that, the German club are looking to bring in the RB Leipzig defensive midfielder Konrad Laimer.
