Bayern Munich may not be done in the transfer window yet, but it might not be a move that you're expecting. For last two months, reports have been coming out of Italy and Germany that Bayern Munich were targeting Juventus forward Kingsley Coman. Now, it appears that a deal is closer than ever.

Gazzetta dello Sport and RTL France are reporting that Bayern have made another offer for the young player. The transfer fee is somewhere between €18-20 million and is expected to be completed before the close of the transfer window.

Coman just turned 19 years old and can play as an attacking midfielder or as a forward. He joined Juventus on a free transfer after letting his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expire. He featured 16 times across all competitions last season for Juve scoring once and bagging two assists. He also made a substitute appearance in the Champions League Final against Barcelona.

Juventus are bringing in Juan Cuadrado from Chelsea on loan (with an option to buy, possibly), so it makes Coman expendable for the right price. However, he's an immense talent that most Juventus fans do not want to let him go for any cost.

What do you think about this development? Should FC Bayern sign Coman?
