Bayern Munich are reportedly looking for a defensive midfielder in the upcoming transfer window. One of the names mentioned is Edson Alvarez from Ajax.
The Rekordmeister is apparently looking at the 25-year-old Mexican and are joined by “title challengers” Borussia Dortmund to get the player’s signature, but would set them back 40 million euros:
