Fiete Arp’s once-promising career has been a bit star-crossed over the past two seasons at Bayern Munich.

Whether Arp has been battling injuries, illnesses, or even his own confidence, the 21-year-old has had a rough go since transferring in from Hamburger SV.

According to a report from Bild (as captured by Sport1), however, Arp has a suitor in 2. Bundesliga side Hannover 96.

Could a move be just the thing to get Arp’s career back on track? Hannover 96 manager Kenan Kocak is banking on it:

There is now apparently a top-class interested party. The Bild newspaper reports that Arp is on the list of second-division club Hannover 96. 96 coach Kenan Kocak is desperately looking for reinforcements at center-forward — and is reportedly in favor of Arp.

Accordingly, the former HSV talent, whose contract with the FCB still runs until 2024, can imagine a loan to the Lower Saxons. Arp’s advisors have already confirmed this to Hannover.

For the move to go down, the report stated that Bayern Munich would have to continue paying the majority of Arp’s hefty salary (rumored to be €5 million annually) or the striker prospect would have to agree to lower his annual wages.
