BAYERN MUNICH are eyeing up shock moves for Premier League midfield duo Tiemoue Bakayoko and Tanguy Ndombele, according to reports.
The Bundesliga champions are believed to be readying themselves for the imminent departures of Thiago Alcantara and Javi Martinez.

And with Corentin Tolisso also potentially nearing the Allianz Arena exit, boss Hansi Flick is seeking summer reinforcements.
Le10 Sport claim that the Bavarians are looking to out-of-favour Premier League stars to fill the impending gap in their illustrious team.
While Bakayoko, 25, featured in pre-season for Frank Lampard last year – he hasn’t seen competitive action in a Blues shirt since the 2018 FA Cup Final.
The one-cap French international has spent the last two years on loan at AC Milan and AS Monaco.
Despite this, however, Chelsea are still believed to be hoping to secure around £31.5million for his signature.
Paris Saint-Germain and Milan are also believed to be interested.
As for Ndombele, a deal may be less straightforward.
There was much initial excitement surrounding the 23-year-old’s move to Spurs last summer, as the North Londoners smashed their transfer record to sign him from Lyon.

But having fallen out-of-favour following Tottenham’s mid-season managerial change – the six-cap Frenchman could be set for a swift exit.
Given the club’s financial difficulties following Covid-19, Spurs would hope to recoup much of the £65m fee shelled out for him last summer.
With Bayern unlikely to match this figure, a compromise in the form of a loan move could be reached – as the German giants managed in securing previous deals for James Rodriguez and Philippe Coutinho.
