Emil Forsberg linked with a move to Bayern

As a result of Julian Nagelsmann’s appointment, Bayern are being linked with RB Leipzig players.

Sweden international Emil Forsberg is one of the RB Leipzig players linked with a transfer to Bayern. Forsberg is a versatile attacking player. He can be deployed on either flank and also used as a number ten.

For a couple of years after Leipzig was promoted to the Bundesliga, Forsberg was a key player. In the last two seasons, he has become a squad player in a talented Leipzig team.

Forsberg has already played under Nagelsmann for the past two seasons, he will need no time to adapt at Die Roten.Advertisements

It could be a shrewd move from Rekordmeister to improve the quality of the squad, but Leipzig will be eager to see Forsberg move away from Bundesliga instead of joining one of their rivals.

OPINION

Emil Forsberg would be a great signing to improve the depth of the squad for next season. He could be a replacement for Thomas Muller, and even could operate on the flanks when needed.

But the emergence of Jamal Musiala might force the club think twice before the spend money on another wide attacker. Forsberg’s possible arrival would reduce Musiala’s playing time.

I believe most of the Bayern fans would be shocked if this move materializes.
