Bayern Munich set to offload Zirkzee
Bundesliga Champions, Bayern Munich are looking to offload Joshua Zirkzee as he doesn’t fit into the plans of new head coach Julian Nagelsmann, especially after Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting extended his contract with the club.
The 20-year-old striker spent the 2nd half of last season on loan at Serie A side Parma but struggled to get game time and had just 4 appearances for the side who finished bottom of Serie A last season.
According to Sky Germany, Bayern have received an offer from Swiss side FC Basel for the forward. However, also from Sky Germany, Zirkzee wishes to continue his career in the Bundesliga rather than elsewhere and is currently assessing his options.
The Dutchman as well as 2 others (Mickael Cuisance and Adrian Fein) who were away from Bayern on loan last season (Cuisance at Marseille, Fein at PSV) are said to be on Nagelsmann’s unwanted list, and Bayern would prefer to see the players leave the club permanently rather on another temporary basis.
