According to a new report by Sport Bild, Bayern Munich youngster Angelo Stiller is wanted by a fair few clubs in Germany and around Europe, chief among them being Arsenal. According to the report, the 19-year-old is looking to take the next step in his career, and the Bavarians may let him leave with a buy-back clause in his contract. This would allow him to gain experience and maybe come back to Munich if a spot opens up someday.
Stiller, who started the season as a defensive midfielder for the Bayern Munich U-19’s, has seen his stock rise after being promoted to the reserve team this season. His inclusion in the lineup allowed Bayern II to finally patch up a leaky defense and orchestrate a turnaround in fortunes, becoming arguably the most consistent 3.Liga side in 2020.
In addition to Arsenal, Stiller is said to have suitors from multiple 1st and 2nd division German clubs. It would be interesting to see where he ends up after this season. Will he follow in the footsteps of Adrian Fein, and take a loan to a 2.Bundesliga club for more experience? Or will he make the leap into the big leagues, and see how he fares with the Gunners in England?
If his goal is to play consistent first team football at a high level, then Arsenal’s offer could be enticing. However, if he wants to develop and have a shot at playing for Bayern someday, then maybe staying in Germany would be the better decision. Regardless of how things go, we wish him all the best no matter where he ends up. It’s always good to see the academy producing new talent.
