As per a report from Football.London, Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are eyeing a move for Arsenal starlet Xavier Amaechi.
Amaechi, an 18-year-old winger, is widely-regarded as one of the most-promising prospects on the books of the Gunners.
The explosive wide-man is noted for his eye for goal, ability to use both feet and searing pace.
In fact, so quick is Amaechi off the mark, that many at Arsenal are of the opinion that the youngster could match Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang stride-for-stride.
Despite a metatarsal injury having restricted his time on the pitch to this point in the current campaign, the English youth international has managed to rack up 3 goals and 5 assists across eight Premier League 2 outings this season.
And, as per the aforementioned report from Football.London, Amaechi’s rise to prominence has certainly not gone unnoticed across Europe.
The teen, who was selected as part of the team of the tournament at last summer’s U17 European championships, is garnering interest from Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.
The Bavarians, who of course heavily-targeted Chelsea standout Callum Hudson-Odoi during the January transfer window, are said to ‘have a long-standing admiration’ for Amaechi, with the board of the German powerhouse keen to lure the Arsenal prospect to the Allianz Arena this summer.
Bayern, though, are far from the only Bundesliga outfit interested in the teen’s signature.
In fact, as many as 14 German top-flight clubs are expected to have scouts present at Arsenal’s Premier League 2 clash with Swansea City tonight, where Amaechi, along with the likes of Eddie Nketiah and Joe Willock, will all be closely monitored.
Amaechi’s current deal at at the Emirates, which he signed last year, is not due to expire until 2022.
