Per a report from Bild, suitors are already lining up for a shot to bring in Bayern Munich back-up goalkeeper Alexander Nübel for a loan assignment.
We had already heard that Niko Kovac and AS Monaco were interested in the former Schalke 04 goalkeeper, but several Bundesliga sides are said to be in the mix. Bild gave a quick breakdown on three clubs that are allegedly going to potentially be in need of a new goalkeeper for next season — Borussia Dortmund, Werder Bremen, and Hertha Berlin:
BVB has its eye on Leipzig’s Peter Gulacsi, but not on Nübel. Bremen would be an option if (Jiri) Pavlenka had to be sold. At Hertha (Rune) Jarstein (end of contract) would have to go first.
On Friday, Hansi Flick expressed his frustration with Nübel’s agent Stefan Backs going public with matters that the manager insisted should remain private. The indicator that Flick was not happy was this specific line: “Ultimately, he knew what he was getting into when he came to Bayern Munich.”
Since the initial news broke on Nübel, reports have also come out linking Bayern Munich to both Union Berlin’s Loris Karius and Arminia Bielefeld’s Stefan Ortega as potential options to fill the No.2 spot behind Manuel Neuer.
