Report: Bayern take interest in Icelandic forward

Italian daily La Repubblica reports that German record champions FC Bayern München are among those interested in Icelandic attacker Albert Gudmundsson of Genoa CFC. 

FC Bayern München are - according to Italian daily La Repubblica - interested in securing the services of Genoa CFC attacker Albert Gundmundsson. The versatile 26-year-old could potentially serve as a short striker behind Harry Kane or work as a ten or winger. The Icelandic international can also work tactically in the German position known as the "anhängende Spitze".

Amid a highly successful Serie A campaign in which he's netted 16 league goals and registered four assists in 35 appearances across all competitions for his Italian side, Gundmundsson's estimated market worth has climbed up to €22 million from €4.5 million last summer. The 37-times-capped KSI international doubtless has other suitors. 

La Repubblica reports that there have been inquires from EPL sides. Italian clubs Inter and Juventus are also thought to be interested. The paper claims that Gundmundsson's club wishes to net a transfer fee in the €30 million range for their star player. Prior to moving to Italy, Gundmundsson spent his career playing for four Erdevisie sides.
