Kingsley Coman is planning on having a medical examination in Munich this weekend days before the transfer window closes, according to a report from BILD. The report includes a supposed agreement between Bayern Munich and Juventus on a €20 million transfer fee.

Reports hinted that a move for Coman was close, Bayern making another approach for the 19-year-old earlier this week. Speaking in Monaco at the UEFA Champions League draw on Thursday, sporting director Matthias Sammer neither confirmed nor denied Bayern's interest in Coman.

"A lot has been speculated over the name recently," Sammer said to SPOX. "It is not going to be boring: we will have to wait and see. We will see what will happen or not happen in the next few days. Nothing is excluded in the transfer window."

Should the transfer go through, Coman would be the most expensive teenager Bayern have ever purchased. Breno currently holds the record, moving for €12 million from FC Sao Paolo. Joshua Kimmich's €8.5 million move from Stuttgart in January is the next closest, although he did not officially become a Bayern player until after his 20th birthday.

BILD goes on to speculate that Pep Guardiola wants to use two quick outside strikers this season. Bayern have already purchased Douglas Costa, a player who Guardiola used with Mario Götze to that end in the preseason. With several Serie A appearances under his belt, he could also be a long-term replacement for Franck Ribéry, who has persisting ankle issues preventing him from regaining fitness.
