Some Bayern Munich fans can breathe a sigh of relief, as it looks like Thilo Kehrer will be heading to AS Monaco on a loan assignment from West Ham.

Kehrer had been linked to Bayern Munich because the Bavarians were eying a versatile defender to add into the mix for its roster. It seems that the Bayern Munich has moved on from those thoughts and that Kehrer is on a clear path to AS Monaco:

⬜️ X News #Kehrer: It’s almost a DONE DEAL now!

✈️ If nothing goes wrong, the 27 y/o could travel to Monaco today to finalize the deal.

⚠️ Excl. detail: The six-months-loan deal includes an obligation to buy of around €11.5m! The conversion to the obligation to buy is tied to easily achievable parameters / #WHUFC

The obligation-to-buy clause on Kehrer’s loan deal would have certainly added another layer to doubt to the deal for Bayern Munich fans. Now, though, it appears that Kehrer will not be an issue for the Bavarians.
