The midfield depth behind Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka reportedly has the Bayern Munich brass worried.

According to a report from Bild (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia), Bayern Munich is concerned about the quality of depth in its midfield and is revisiting its prior interest in both Borussia Mönchengladbach’s Florian Neuhaus and Stade Rennais F.C.’s Eduardo Camavinga.

Specifically, Bayern Munich is worried about how steep the drop off is when either Joshua Kimmich or Leon Goretzka is not on the pitch.

With Javi Martinez, Corentin Tolisso, and Tiago Dantas all potentially leaving the club this summer, Bayern Munich could be left with Jamal Musiala and Marc Roca as its primary options behind Kimmich and Goretzka.

The problem with Neuhaus and Camavinga, however, is two-fold. First, each midfielder is likely to cost €40 million or more. Second, each player is in a position in his career where a back-up role might not necessarily be appealing.

The report also stated that the €42.5 million fee that Bayern Munich paid for RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano might limit what funds the Bavarians have available to bolster the rest of the roster.

Of course, the roster conundrum could also take a swerve if Bayern Munich and Hansi Flick part ways. With the leading candidate being Julian Nagelsmann, continuing with a 4-2-3-1 formation might not be a sure thing — which could alter roster priorities and offseason transfer targets.
