Bayern Munich have signed 21-year-old striker Gerrit Wegkamp from Fortuna Dusseldorf on a free transfer

Thorsten Wagner

The Bayern Munich II turnover train keeps rolling along, this time with the addition of 21-year-old striker Gerrit Wegkamp from Fortuna Dusseldorf on a free transfer. The 21-year-old made featured eight times for Dusseldorf and Dusseldorf II sides last season, netting a goal to go along with threee assists before spending the last six months of the season on loan to 3.Liga side MSV Dusiburg.

Given his lack of goals and assists at the more advanced levels, it's not surprising that a move back to a Regionalliga club would be in the cards for the 21-year-old German. He'll likely serve to replace the production of the departing Kevin Friesenbichler as noted by the report, but could see his minutes challenged by other new addition Lucas Görtler.
