With Philipp Lahm having announced his upcoming retirement, Bayern Munich will be looking at finding a suitable replacement for one of their best ever players over the coming months. The spot will certainly be a hard one to fill, but there are certainly plenty of options that Bayern have been looking at of late, and the latest one seems like he could be a good man for the job.
The man that has been eyed up most recently is Bayern Leverkusen’s 19 year old right back Benjamin Henrichs. The youngster has recently made a breakthrough and secured a starting spot in the Bundesliga side, something that’s pretty impressive for a player of his age. As a result, understandably, he’s been attracting a fair amount of attention.
Not only has he been capped for the senior Germany side, but has also played in 17 Bundesliga games this season, as well as all 6 Champions League matches. The player therefore looks to be like a promising prospect, and should Bayern go for him, he could be the man to replace Lahm.
Bayern have also been eyeing other options, as you can see from the article below, but Henrichs is certainly one to consider for the future.
