Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich reportedly want to sign Xavier Amaechi, although Premier League Arsenal will be desperate to keep him.

Xavier Amaechi was unhappy with Unai Emery’s decision to leave him out of Arsenal’s 23-man Europa League final squad last week and Football London believes that he is now looking to force a move away from The Emirates this summer.

An exciting left-footed winger who plays on the right of the attack, the 18-year-old is one of the most gifted young attackers in Arsenal’s squad. He scored four goals and produced five assists for Freddie Ljungberg’s U23 side last season and travelled to Baku as The Gunners prepared to face Chelsea in the Europa League final on Wednesday.

 

But Amaechi was reportedly left stunned when it emerged that he was the only player in Arsenal’s party who would not be included in the 23-man matchday squad.

And Football London reports that the teenager is increasingly unlikely to extend a contract that expires in 12 month’s time.

Bayern Munich are apparently very interested, having missed out on another of England’s most promising young wingers in Chelsea forward Callum Hudson-Odoi.

In recent years, Arsenal have lost the likes of Chris Willock, Donyell Malen and Marcus McGuane and it seems that Amaechi could soon slip through their grasp too.
