Bayern Munich Line Up Shock Swoop For Nigerian-Born  Youngster  Amaechi

Bayern Munich are looking to raid Arsenal for teenage Nigerian-born winger Xavier Amaechi.

Amaechi, 18, is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in the Arsenal academy and has scored three times in Premier League 2 matches this season.

He signed his first professional deal on his 17th birthday and is contracted to the club until 2022.

But Bayern are among a host of clubs keeping tabs on the teenager with the view to making him the latest young English player to move to Germany.

Football.London reports Borussia Dortmund are also keen on Amaechi.

A host of Bundesliga clubs are tipped to watch Arsenal Under-23s against Swansea on Monday with Eddie Nketiah, Joe Willock, Bukayo Saka and Julio Pleguezuelo all set to be in action.

Amaechi has been made to wait for his senior debut after suffering a metatarsal injury.

The youngster has already been likened to Jadon Sancho, who has taken the Bundesliga by storm with Borussia Dortmund.

Fellow Arsenal youngster Reiss Nelson continues to impress at Hoffenheim while Emile Smith Rowe joined Leipzig on loan in January.

Bayern are also expected to reignite their interest in Callum Hudson-Odoi after having three bids rejected by Chelsea .

Hudson-Odoi wanted the move to Bayern and may look to force through a transfer at the end of the season.

The likes of Ademola Lookman and Reece Oxford have also impressed during short-term stints in Germany and it is hoped that others will follow suit.
