Bayern breakthrough candidate on the precipice of high-profile loan

FC Bayern II forward Leon Dajaku is currently the subject of multiple loan talks. The German champions scout a better developmental temporary home for one of their more promising prospects.
Another one of the crucial cogs in the FC Bayern II side that captured Germany’s third division crown last season appears to be on the move. Nineteen-year-old right-attacking winger Leon Dajaku has been linked to four clubs outside Germany according to both German magazine “Sportbild” and German footballing-data-aggregator

In addition to scoring four goals and supplying four assists for the organization’s reserve team last season, head coach Hansi Flick accorded the young Kosovar a small taste of top-tier Bundesliga action via two late-game substitutions in the final stages of the 2019/20 campaign. Flick obviously has no space for another flank attacker on his roster this year, so a loan seems likely.

Dajaku is said to prefer to assemble more time and playing experience outside of Germany. It is such that the club are currently speaking with Premiership side Sheffield United, Championship club Swansea City, and two Serie A sides, US Sassuolo and FC Turin. Sporting magazine “Spox” also reports that lower-tier German sides such as Jahn Regensburg are interested.

“Sportbild” notes that another consideration might be converting Dajaku to right back at his parent club. Assuming that Thiago Alcantara leaves Bayern, Joshua Kimmich would return to the midfield to pair with Leon Goretzka. This would leave Flick in need of another right fullback behind Benajmin Pavard on the depth chart.
