Barter with Bayern? Ajax have Joshua Zirkzee on their radar!

FC Bayern have been associated with numerous Ajax Amsterdam players in recent weeks. In addition to Noussair Mazraoui and Ryan Gravenberch, whose move to Monaco is imminent, the FCB also seem to be keeping an eye on Sebastien Haller, Jurrien Timber and Antony. According to current media reports, there may be an exchange between the two clubs in the summer, as Ajax also have a Bayern professional on the list.

As reported by “SPOX” and “GOAL”, Ajax Amsterdam are dealing with Bayern youngster Joshua Zirkzee. The 20-year-old striker is on loan at RSC Anderlecht until the summer and has had a good season in Belgium. In 42 games, the Dutchman has scored 17 goals and ten assists.

How things will continue with Zirkzee in Munich in the long term is open. He is contractually tied to the record champions until 2023. According to reports, however, FCB would be quite willing to sell the striker outright if an attractive offer of € 8-10 million is received.

Zirkzee himself is no longer interested in making a substitute at Bayern and would like to play regularly at the highest level in the future: “I have minutes to play here, that was my goal. I don’t think it makes much sense to return to Bayern after a season in which I have played a lot, “he said recently in an interview with” SPOX “and” GOAL “.

Will Haller come for Zirkzee?

Due to Bayern being interested in a total of four Ajax players, a swap deal with Zirkzee in the summer is by no means out of the question. However, this would only be an option for Gravenberch, Timber, Haller and Antony, as Mazraoui is available on a free transfer and Bayern are said to have already made a verbal commitment.

Haller in particular could become an interesting personality at Bayern should the planned extension with Robert Lewandowski explode. According to information “BILD”, FCB has already knocked on the management of him. Ajax’s pain threshold is said to be € 40 million. With Zirkzee you would almost directly get a successor from Munich.

However, Zirkzee could also play a role in the Gravenberch agreement. According to the Dutch “Telegraaf”, the transfer negotiations between Ajax and Bayern have stalled.
