With Philipp Lahm having announced his upcoming retirement, Bayern Munich will be looking at finding a suitable replacement for the club legend over the coming months. The spot will certainly be a hard one to fill, but there are certainly plenty of options out there that Bayern have been looking at of late, with the latest target seemingly being a good fit.
That man 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 Germany’s senior international side, but has also played in 17 Bundesliga games this season, also featuring in all 6 of Leverkusen’s 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.
However, it’s not a case of all Bayern’s eggs being in one basket, as the German side have also been eyeing other options, as you can see from the article below, but Henrichs is certainly one to consider for the future.
