Bayern Munich have set aside around €100 million to sign a striker this summer, according to Sky Germany.
The Bavarians let Robert Lewandowski join Barcelona for around €50 million after eight years at the club and failed to replace him.
Bayern signed Sadio Mane from Liverpool, but he is a winger and not a striker to lead the line. Die Rekordmeister have missed that focal point.
The lack of a top-class striker allowed Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting to step into the starting XI. He has been crucial for Bayern, as he is their top scorer.
However, he is 34 and in the twilight of his career, and the club want a new striker. They are ready to spend as much as €100 million if they can identify the right target.
Bayern like Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane. The Englishman is in the final year of his contract with Spurs.
He is reportedly considering his future after becoming the club’s all-time top scorer without a trophy for his efforts.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy may have to sell, but he will demand every penny the 29-year-old is worth. Manchester United are also interested.
Another target for the Bundesliga champions is Napoli hitman Victor Osimhen. The Nigerian international is firing the Partenopei to their first Scudetto in 33 years with 21 goals and four assists.
His goals have put Napoli at the top of the Serie A table, where they are 16 points clear of Lazio.
His four goals and two assists in the Champions League have helped them to the quarter-finals, where they will face AC Milan.
However, Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis will reportedly demand around €150 million for his star striker. Paris Saint-Germain, Man United and Chelsea are interested in the former Lille striker.
Bayern are also monitoring Eintracht Frankfurt’s Randal Kolo Muani. The French forward has bagged 19 goals and 14 assists in 38 games.
Club bosses thought Kolo Muani was not well-rounded enough, but they are warming to him. Die Adler have set a €100m price tag on their asset.
It is unclear who the Bayern board will be spending their funds on. They want to take their time before settling on a target who ticks all their boxes.
