Report: Bayern keen on Casemiro

By Rune Gjerulff   @runegjerulff

New Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel is apparently a big fan of Casemiro.
Kicker reports that Bayern Munich are keen to sign a new No. 6 this summer.

The preferred candidate is believed to be Casemiro, who just joined Manchester United from Real Madrid last summer.

Should he not be available, Tuchel is reportedly looking to bring in a similar type of defensive midfielder with leadership qualities.

Bringing in a new No. 6 could free up Joshua Kimmich, who Tuchel seems to see as more of a No. 8.

Bayern are also understood to be looking to bring in a new striker this summer.
