Last week, Bayern Munich goalkeeper Sven Ulreich admitted that he might be open to a move given the potential logjam in between the sticks for the Bavarian club. Per kicker and TZ, there could be a couple of familiar suitors for the 31-year-old.

Both Hertha Berlin and FC Augsburg are potential destinations for Ulreich, who has built a reputation as a solid professional and capable back-up to Manuel Neuer. Since Schalke 04 goalkeeper Alexander Nübel is making the move to Bavaria this summer, Ulreich might seize an opportunity to be a starter. Per the kicker report:

The goalkeeper question at FC Augsburg remains exciting. According to kicker’s research, there has not yet been any contact between FCA and Union’s Rafal Gikiewicz, while manager Stefan Reuter has denied any interest in Bavaria’s up-and-coming keeper Christian Früchtl. Another Munich resident could be a better match: Sven Ulreich (31, contract until 2021). He may wait and see how the market develops after the coronavirus crisis. It is questionable whether FCA could afford him. And Augsburg would first have to make the roster space for a new keeper.

As noted, Augsburg was once considered a likely landing spot for Früchtl, but a loan move there appears to be off the table. Meanwhile, TZ added that Die Alte Dame could also be a player for Ulreich. Hertha Berlin, of course, has been in a constant state of upheaval this season and might be looking to stabilize itself for an upcoming re-tooling of its roster.
