Report: Bayern face competition for Palhinha

In addition to Bayern Munich, at least two other Premier League clubs are reportedly interested in signing Fulham's Joao Palhinha.
Bayern Munich came close to signing Joao Palhinha over the summer, but the move fell through on deadline day as Fulham failed to bring in a replacement before the transfer window closed.

Palhinha has since extended his contract with Fulham until 2028, but a January move to Germany could still be on the cards, with Bayern sporting director Christoph Freund revealing that he's still on the German champions' radar.

However, according to The Telegraph, Bayern are not the only club interested in the 28-year-old defensive midfielder, with the report claiming that at least two Premier League clubs are also keen.

Fulham are likely to demand around £50 million for Palhinha, but the price could rise if a bidding war breaks out.
