According to a report from Footmercato journalist Santi Aouna, Bayern Munich is seriously considering a move for Paris Saint-Germain defender Thilo Kehrer.

In recent weeks, the Bavarians were linked to Kehrer, but most observers dismissed the rumors as the typical kind of talk generated during “silly season.” Now, however, it looks like those discussions could actually have some traction:

Info: As revealed here, Bayern Munich remain attentive to Thilo Kehrer’s situation Flag of Germany. A meeting took place last night between one of the player’s representatives and a Bavarian leader.

Additional information was provided within the report:

The German club has also met in recent hours with one of the representatives of the versatile 24-year-old defender to discuss a possible arrival. Both parties were present Friday evening at the match between Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayern Munich (1-1). Bought 37 million euros from Schalke 04 in the summer of 2018, Thilo Kehrer is still under contract until June 2023 with PSG.

With Benjamin Pavard and Josip Stanisic as Bayern Munich’s top options and Bouna Sarr as a deep reserve, this move seems a little puzzling — especially as the Bavarians are rumored to be trying to secure funds to acquire RB Leipzig midfielder Marcel Sabitzer.
