Storm jewel Rasmus Höjlund from Atalanta Bergamo has recently shot into the focus of the top clubs – including allegedly FC Bayern. However, there are conflicting reports of interest from Säbener Straße in the “new Haaland”.
Young, tall, blond hair and a sensational nose for goals: It is no coincidence that Rasmus Höjlund is already being compared to the Norwegian superstar Erling Haaland in his home country of Denmark.
After all, the 29-year-old has scored seven goals in 24 Serie A games this season in the Atalanta Bergamo shirt. The Copenhagen native also has an impressive five goals in four international matches in the statistics.
The fact that the Italian portal “Tuttomercatoweb.com” recently reported that FC Bayern had also entered the poker game for Höjlund was not surprising given these figures.
An alleged change of advisor by the courted youngster to the agency of Fali Ramadani, who once also accommodated Leroy Sané in Munich, fueled the rumor mill even more.
Big solution in FC Bayern’s sights?
However, if you believe “Sky” reporter and transfer expert Florian Plettenberg, there is nothing to the speculation from Italy. Accordingly, FC Bayern is not trying to get Höjlund, whose market value is now estimated at a whopping 35 million euros.
In any case, the German record champions should have their sights set on a very big solution in the central attack. Harry Kane has been traded by Tottenham Hotspur in Munich for a long time. Victor Osimhen (SSC Napoli) and Randal Kolo Muani (Eintracht Frankfurt) are also considered possible candidates.
FC Bayern is currently very thin on the nine. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is the only trained central attacker in the squad. The 34-year-old recently extended his contract at Säbener Strasse until 2024.
