Bayern have already made two signing for the summer in a bit of a raid of Hoffenheim’s first team, with both Niklas Sule and Sebastian Rudy set to join at the end of the 2016/17 campaign.
However, it seems that one player at Hoffenheim is slightly jealous of his teammates opportunity to play for the dominant German side, as although Hoffenheim are showing their worth this season, currently sitting in 3rd unbeaten, Bayern is the club to be at in Germany.
That man is in fact a former Bayern player; Sandro Wagner. The player, now 29, actually came through the academy of Bayern Munich, but left due to the fact that he was struggling to get any real first team football. Having moved away from Bayern back then to join Duisburg, the forward has since established himself as a great Bundesliga player, having featured for the likes of Werder Bremen, Kaiserslautern, Hertha Berlin, Darmstadt and now Hoffenheim.
But having seen his fair share of the Bundesliga, the striker has expressed his dream of returning to Bayern one more time, stating that the club will always be his club:
“Bayern are my club and will always be my club.
“That is why I can very well imagine myself returning to Bayern at some point.
“But I do not know whether I will return as a player or in another position.” Via goal.com
However, although Bayern aren’t showing much sign of interest in the forward, other clubs in the Premier League have been expressing some level of interest – something which Wagner has not ruled out:
“I have had offers in the past and I am still receiving offers. I am happy with the interest being shown in me.
“That is recognition for what I am doing on the pitch. And I cannot rule out a move to the Premier League at some point.” Via goal.com
In terms of whether Wagner would be a good addition or not, he would hardly be the worst signing in the world. Of course Hoffenehim would be unlikely to want to let go of one of their key players, and the forward is also getting on a bit at the age of 29, but with Lewandowski being the only real out and out striker at the club, Wagner would hardly be the worst signing to make – I think we can all agree on this.
One frustrating thing for me as a follower of Bayern, is that we are constantly being linked with players that we do not need, and yet we are never being linked with a striker – something that arguably we do need, as if Lewandowski is injured then Muller will have to play up front out of his favoured position and then there will be a whole rearrangement of the side. Therefore, in my opinion, someone like Wagner would be a welcome addition.
