While finding himself stuck in the fourth tier of German soccer, the 24-year-old may make a move away from Munich.

Forward Kwasi Okyere Wriedt has been part of Bayern Munich II since 2017, but rather than working up to the main team he could make a move to England and join Norwich. This season, Wriedt has scored 22 goals and provided 7 assists in 30 appearances in the Regionalliga. He’s been called up to the senior team three times, including for a second round DFB Pokal game against Leipzig last year. In that match, he almost claimed the game winner with a header that smashed off the bar.

He is yet to make a breakthrough into Niko Kovac’s squad, but he is still producing extraordinarily well for the second team. A move away from Munich could be enticing with a promise of immediate first team soccer. According to Fussball Transfers, Wriedt turned down moves to Genk and RB Salzburg to stay with Bayern. Also mentioned in the report is Hertha Berlin, who are looking to energize their squad by having Wriedt join players like Davie Selke and Palko Dardai. At the age of 24, Wriedt isn’t not getting any younger and he could be looking for the kind of move that would jumpstart his career.

A career playing in the 4th tier isn’t very exciting, so unless he gets a few chances under Kovac, we may see the Ghana international leave Germany as a whole.
