New Bayern manager Niko Kovac appears set on changing up a few things at the Allianz Arena, where he has taken over from Jupp Heynckes. The Bavarians are said to be close to securing a few signatures ahead of the new campaign, while some big names seem to be on the chopping block.
In terms of players incoming, Croatia's 2018 FIFA World Cup star Ante Rebic is reportedly close to a move from Eintracht Frankfurt. The player's agent is even believed to have cut his holiday short to negotiate with the German giants, as per tvdellosport, although other reports suggest that his representative is trying to up his price tag by linking him with Bayern.
Stuttgart and France right-back Benjamin Pavard could also be nearing a move to Bayern following his impressive displays for his country in Russia. It has been claimed he could join the German giants on a free next season, although, to avoid missing out on the player, Bayern are considering signing him in this window for a fee.
Kicker has reported that Bayern are also looking at young Hamburg striker Jann-Fiete Arp, while the Toronto Sun has claimed that 17-year-old Canadian winger Alphonso Davies is on their radar. The starlet has impressed for the Vancouver Whitecaps in the MLS, and could be headed for Europe.
Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Julian Draxler is another attacking player the Bundesliga champions are said to be considering a move for in this window.
An overhaul of sorts seems in order from Kovac, who is said to be prepared to let a number of high-profile players exit the club. Defender Jerome Boateng has been linked with a move away from Bayern, with even Karl-Heinz Rummenigge confirming the 2014 World Cup winner is thinking of moving on.
Winger Kingsley Coman is believed to be on Arsenal's radar, while the club are reportedly willing to let midfielders Thiago Alcantara and Arturo Vidal leave Bayern before the close of the window. Striker Robert Lewandowski could also still move before the start of the 2018/19 campaign.
