Several big clubs are tracking Alphonso Davies.

Bayern Munich are among a host of massive European clubs interested in a young Canadian winger, according to a report from The Toronto Sun. Those other teams interested in him are Liverpool, PSV Eindhoven, Real Madrid, and Manchester United.

The 17 year old has really grown into his game over the last two seasons with the Vancouver Whitecaps. His blazing fast speed on the wing allow him to beat defenders with and without the ball. Davies won the Golden Boot for the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup as a 16 year old despite Canada being eliminated in the quarterfinals.

Here’s a goal that Davies scored over the weekend in MLS play in a losing effort against DC United.

He won’t turn 18 until November, so there’s still some time he’s ready to contribute to a club like Bayern. If they were to bring in Davies, there would certainly be a loan involved to allow him to continue to grow and learn the game at the European level.
