Dušan Vlahović is so far looking like the most likely candidate to be the next Bayern Munich striker. The Juventus and Serbia striker’s name has been thrown around a lot, with reports constantly changing on the status of the player. Whatever the case, a former Bayern player thinks that Vlahović should be the frontman of the Rekordmeister.

“I think Vlahović would fit in well at Bayern - He’s a striker who knows where the goal is. He would be someone to think about”, ex-Bayern pro Lothar Matthäus said (Abendzeitung’s Maximilian Koch via @iMiaSanMia).

Lothar is so convinced of Vlahović’s quality that he likened him to a fellow Serie A striker: Romelu Lukaku(?!). “He reminds me a bit of a young Romelu Lukaku: strong, tall, robust, a target man who knows what to do in the box”, the 62-year-old explained.

With everyone clamoring for Vlahović to don the Bayern shirt next season, it’s only a matter of time before the board picks up on the trend.
