Bayern Munich is eyeing the German player to replace Muller

Bayern Munich are reportedly considering a summer transfer move for Chelsea's forward Kai Havertz, according to a recent report from 90min.

The Bundesliga club is said to have included Chelsea's number 29 on their shortlist in anticipation of the upcoming transfer window. Despite his big-money move from Bayer Leverkusen to Chelsea less than three years ago, the 23-year-old German international has not been able to replicate the form that led to his transfer.

Consequently, there are concerns over Havertz's future at Stamford Bridge, and Bayern officials are hopeful that they can persuade the German to join the Allianz Arena in time for the next season.

This season, during his 40 appearances at Stamford Bridge, the Chelsea forward has scored 9 goals. 

It is worth noting that despite playing mostly as a central striker for Chelsea, reports suggest that Bayern Munich sees Havertz as a potential replacement for Thomas Muller, who can operate in the spaces behind the team's striker. This role requires a player who can 'float' and make the most of the available spaces.
