Leaving no stone unturned.

Bayern Munich have so far written off Giorgi Mamardashvili as the third GK behind Manuel Neuer and Sven Ulreich but are still in the running for Sevilla FC goalie Yassine Bounou.

Now, it looks like the Bavarians are looking at the Premier League, in this case Brentford FC’s David Raya. The price? Forty million British pounds.

BFW Analysis

A price of £40 million for a 27-year-old goalkeeper sounds like an unwise move. We could’ve just risked Alexander Nübel (who is the same age by the way) and just forced him to stay or Neuer to give up minutes. Nübel was official loaned to VfB Stuttgart earlier today.

Bono is still the sensible choice if we’re looking to bring in another GK. Sommer also won’t go anywhere until Bayern have signed another shot-stopper.

Of course, there’s also Copenhagen’s Kamil Grabara or our gigantic youth player.
