Always on the hunt for more talent, Bayern Munich is reportedly a growing list of power clubs eyeing 16-year-old Toronto FC homegrown player Jahkeele Marshall-Rutty.

Per a report from Goal, the Bavarians are joining Manchester United, Juventus, Manchester City, and Porto among clubs looking to find “the next Alphonso Davies” from Canada’s rich developmental grounds:

That young talent is Jahkeele Marshall-Rutty, the 16-year-old Toronto FC product that has already been called up to Canada’s senior national team. With his invite in January, Marhsall-Rutty became the youngest-ever call-up by the men’s team, breaking Davies’ record by just five days.

And, like Davies before him, Marshall-Rutty is already earning overseas interest before truly establishing himself as a professional. Sources tell Goal that Manchester United, Juventus, Manchester City, Porto and, coincidentally, Bayern have all had their eye on the teenager’s rise.

While the outside position at Bayern Munich is looking pretty stacked with Kingsley Coman, Leroy Sane, Serge Gnabry, and part-time wing Jamal Musiala for the immediate future, it would not shocking to see Bayern Munich eventually pull the trigger on a move for another prospect.
