Despite claiming the double last term, one of the Nigerian’s colleagues is looking to leave BayArena for the dethroned Bavarians.

Bayer Leverkusen defender Jonathan Tah has reportedly reiterated his desire to move to Bayern Munich this summer. 

The 28-year-old joined Die Werkself in 2015 and has gone on to feature 258 times in the Bundesliga, with 31 league games played in Leverkusen's historic season that saw them dethrone Bayern after the latter's 11-year consecutive reign.

However, the defender is keen to move on after nine years at BayArena, and the Bavarians are trying to reach an agreement for the Germany international. 

While reports have surfaced suggesting Premier League clubs or Saudi Pro League sides could try to tempt the defender, transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Tah’s only interest is switching to Bayern this summer. 

What comes next?

It remains to be seen if both clubs agree on a fee for the 28-year-old, who is representing Germany at the ongoing European Championship, even if Tah will miss the hosts’ round of 16 match against Denmark

The winner of that clash in Dortmund goes on to face Spain or Georgia in the quarter-finals in Stuttgart.
