Bayern Munich pursuing Lion Lauberbach from Kiel to replace Kwasi Wriedt (Bild)
Bayern II’s longtime striker Kwasi Wriedt will probably leave the club at the end of the season. He has offers from the Netherlands and the English Championship. Joshua Zirkzee, of course, is flying high while Fiete Arp has yet to make an impression on account of his unfortunate injuries. He may go out on loan to see more playing time.
In the meanwhile, Bayern has set its sights on a promising striker who currently plays for Holstein Kiel: Lion Lauberbach, aged 21.
According to Bild, Lauberbach has played in the shadow of U21 national striker Janni Serra, but Bayern’s scouts like what they see: he’s described as “technically good, physically robust, and very fast despite his size.”
Bayern reportedly would like to acquire him on loan with an option to buy or in the summer for a fee of €1.5-2m. Sport1 adds that Lauberbach would like to transfer immediately this winter, but Kiel is unwilling to let him leave.

Lauberbach wird in Aussicht gestellt, vereinzelt b.d. Profis mitzutrainieren. @SPORT1 pic.twitter.com/XLKtvsk0wg— Florian Plettenberg (@Plettigoal) January 23, 2020
