Hoffenheim youngster Tom Bischof has the biggest clubs in Germany battling over him as Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, and RB Leipzig are all keen to land the 16-year-old phenom.

The central midfielder’s contract expires in 2022 and the competition is heating up as Hoffenheim could be feeling some pressure to sell the prospect before he can leave for free next summer (per kicker):

Big clubs like Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund or RB Leipzig are already vying for Tom Bischof. But Hoffenheim is also fighting for its own generation and shows the talent the chances and possibilities to go into the professional field at TSG.

Bavaria’s new head coach Julian Nagelsmann is said to have intervened personally to make Tom Bischof a move from Hoffenheim to Munich. Where Bischof would also meet his ex-coach Danny Galm, who by the way, like Bischof, once emerged from the amateur club TSV Amorbach.

With all of those connections, it seems like Bayern Munich would be a natural choice for the youngster. Hoffenheim, however, would love to be able to convince Bischof to be a part of their next generations of stars

TSG is also fighting for its own product, which is already bound to Hoffenheim with a contract until 2022. Per kicker information, the U-17 player was now involved in the preparation of the Hoffenheim U-19 and should be able to get a taste of the professional training under head coach Sebastian Hoeneß at the beginning of July.

Hoffenheim is going to try whatever it can to convince Bischof to stay, but a bigger money deal from Bayern Munich — and the sponsorship of both Nagelsmann and Galm — could be attractive to the player should the Bavarians intensify their pursuit.
