Bayern want Benjamin Henrichs

Bayern Munich are keen on signing Benjamin Henrichs from AS Monaco, according to Sky Sports’ German branch.

The 22-year-old passed through the youth ranks at Bayer Leverkusen and subsequently made 61 first-team appearances for them over three years, before moving to Monaco last summer for €20 million. He has already nailed three senior international caps for Germany.

Primarily a full-back able to play on both flanks, but also capable of performing in midfield, Henrichs’ fine performances in the Ligue 1 as well as his versatility have attracted the interest of the Bavarians.

The Bundesliga champions are trying to find a suitable backup option for first-choice right-back Joshua Kimmich. They have been looking at Tottenham Hotspur’s Kieran Trippier who has been put up for sale by the north London club, but they apparently deem the England international too expensive for such a role and have therefore turned their attention to Henrichs.

Henrichs’ contract with Monaco, however, doesn’t expire before the summer of 2023, and it’s safe to assume that like Trippier, he won’t come cheap.
