According to information by Transfermarkt, Bayern Munich has brought in another talent from TSG Hoffenheim’s youth setup, Mamin Sanyang. The 17-year-old right-winger born in Brikama in the Gambia arrived at Hoffenheim from Heidenheim five years ago. Arriving in Germany at the age of ten as a refugee, he has played 19 games this season for U-17 Hoffenheim, scoring eight goals and assisting four.

Sanyang follows the footsteps of Armindo Sieb, the 17-year-old attacking midfielder who has drawn comparisons to Serge Gnabry. Sieb was signed by the Bavarians in mid-May this year.

Sanyang has already made his medical checks in Munich according to Transfermarkt and is set to sign a three-year contract for the Bavarians. Like Sieb, Sanyang will join Bayern on a free transfer after his contract expires from Hoffenheim in July. Impressing for the U-17, Sanyang has also played two games for the U-19 Hoffenheim squad, scoring one goal.

The Bayern Munich campus has been busy as of late. Apart from the recruiting both Sanyang and Sieb, the Bavarian giants have signed the 1.90-meter tall center-forward Lenn Jastremski from VfL Wolfsburg and 16-year-old Luxemburgish striker David Jonathans from Swift Hesperange.
