The 19-year-old is in high demand and eager to secure first-team football elsewhere, although he still sees his long-term future at the Allianz Arena.
AC Milan is one of four clubs interested in signing Bayern Munich star Leon Dajaku. objective spirit SPOX can reveal.
Union Berlin, Cologne and Nice also hope to sign the 19-year-old forward. All four clubs are hoping to reach an agreement to sign Dajaku on a loan-to-buy basis, and the attacker is eager to leave Bayern in the short term to secure regular first-team football.
A former Stuttgart player, Dajaku joined Bayern in 2019, but has mainly run for the reserve side of the club, which currently plays in the third division.
He made two brief Bundesliga appearances last season, but his only action for the first team in 2020-21 so far has been a 30-minute cameo against minnows FC Duren in the DFB-Pokal first round.
However, while all interested clubs would like to sign him permanently, Dajaku still sees his long-term future at Bayern and would prefer to leave on a direct loan deal.
Bayern II coach Holger Seitz has mainly used Dajaku as a left winger, but he has appeared on the right and in the middle. They were absent from the 2-0 win over SV Meppen on Tuesday due to uncertainty about their future.
Dajaku has yet to decide where his future lies, but a decision is expected by the end of the week.
Union Berlin, in fifth place, and Cologne, in 16th, would, of course, give Dajaku a chance to stay in the Bundesliga, but the attraction of Serie A leaders AC Milan is obvious.
Nice may have an advantage, as Dajaku could rejoin his former Bayern teammate Flavius Daniliuc. The pair were two of four players who lived together on the Bayern campus during the lockdown in spring 2020, before the Austrian defender left for France. After some initial struggles, Daniliuc is now a regular starter for Nice’s first team, which could attract Dajaku.
The winger came close to leaving Bayern in the summer. Sheffield United, Swansea and Sassuolo were among the interested clubs and their representatives traveled to England in September for talks, but ultimately no move was made.
