Alternative to Schlotterbeck? Bayern targets young Ajax Timber!

With Noussair Mazraoui and Ryan Gravenberch, FC Bayern already have two Ajax Amsterdam professionals at stake, with Jurrien Timber a third professional could now move from Dutch record champions to Isar in the summer.

The managers of Monaco are currently carrying out plans for next season, the team should have some new faces. In addition to a new midfielder and right-back, Julian Nagelsmann is also hoping for a replacement for Süle in the center of defense. As reported by “Sport BILD”, FCB has targeted a new candidate for Jurrien Timber.

Bayern scouts are convinced of Timber

According to the newspaper, Munich have closely followed the 20-year-old defender in recent weeks. Consequently, Bayern scouts should be “impressed”. After the FCB lost in the competition to Nico Schlotterbeck and the young DFB is about to move to Dortmund, Timber could now become a real alternative.

The problem: The 6-time Dutch national team player is on the list of several top clubs. Manchester United in particular is said to be very interested. There are two clubs involved in the Bundesliga, BVB and RB Leipzig.

FCB has other options in central defense

The odds could also become a problem for Bayern. Timber is contractually linked to Ajax until 2024 and has a market value of € 30 million. The Munich side don’t want to spend that much money on a new central defender. Especially since Tanguy Nainzou already has a young player for these positions in their ranks. According to reports, sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic would like the French to have much more playing time.

Another point against a transfer: thanks to Mazraoui’s upcoming engagement, Benjamin Pavard will receive much more playing time in the middle of defense next season.
