The 21-year-old natural left-back has made seven appearances for Thomas Tuchel's FCB senior side across all competitions this season. Krätzig netted a goal off the bench in Bayern's opening DFB-Pokal Round victory against Preußen Münster, yet struggled in an advanced midfield deployment during his lone start under Tuchel; Bayern's defeat to Saarbrücken in the second round of the domestic cup.
Even with left-back Alphonso Davies' recent form and injury issues, Krätzig remains behind Raphaël Guerreiro on Tuchel's depth chart. Newly-acquired fullback Sacha Boey can also play on the left. Sky reports that Bayern are in talks with FK Austria Wien (Austria Vienna) over a six-month loan arrangement. The two clubs have until tomorrow to reach an agreement.
