The FC Bayern Munich is expected to separate from one of his defenders. After the Bavarian record champions were able to book some newcomers this summer, up to three players are still facing a possible change.

Bayern want to thin out their squad

With Sadio Mané (Liverpool), Matthijs de Ligt (Juventus Turin), Mathys Tel (Stade Rennes), Ryan Gravenberch and Noussair Mazraoui (both Ajax Amsterdam), the German record champions have strengthened their squad. Now the squad is to be thinned out.

According to consistent media reports, 20-year-old Tanguy Nianzou seems to be one of the victims. The central defender came on a free transfer in 2020 Paris Saint-Germain and made 22 appearances in all competitions last season. As a rule, however, these were short-term assignments, and he was hardly considered for the starting eleven.

The new employer of the French U21 international is expected to be Sevilla FC, reports' sport.de '. After Jules Koundé's departure to FC Barcelona, ​​he was still looking for reinforcements in the defense headquarters. Nianzou is said to be the Andalusians' top transfer target.

Seville and Bavaria in advanced talks

According to Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the clubs are said to be in advanced talks. Sevilla hope to sign Nianzou as early as this week, writes Romano Twitter .



Nianzou, who still has a contract in Munich until 2024, has recently been repeatedly associated with a change. Among other things, OGC Nice and Stade Rennes were under discussion France and West Ham United from England. In all probability, however, the Spanish Champions League participant has now prevailed.

Return not excluded

The transfer fee should be 20 million euros Bayern have secured a buyback option . A return to Säbener Straße is therefore within the realm of possibility.

The 1.91 meter tall defender has not only been able to prove his defensive qualities in the past, but also his header power with set pieces. He can also be used in central defensive midfield. However, he was still denied his big breakthrough in Munich.

FC Bayern Munich got off to a strong start in the new Bundesliga season with two convincing victories and is currently in first place in the table. On Sunday, the Munich team is going to Bochum for an away game – then possibly without Nianzou.
