Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Gregor Kobel is reportedly on a list of goalkeeper targets Bayern Munich want to replace Manue Neuer future

Kobel has been in top form for Dortmund since joining from Stuttgart in 2021 and Bayern are monitoring the situation. The German newspaper

UFABET reports that Bayern are interested in signing Kobel as a possible successor to Mr. Err, who is about to retire.

The newspaper claims Bayern have made contact with the 25-year-old and could make a serious move in the summer of 2024, when Neuer’s current contract expires.

Gregor Kobel is only 25 years old and plies his trade at Borussia Dortmund. His current contract runs until 2026. According to George Holzner of kicker, Kobel is being watched closely by the Bayern top brass. With any potential moves coming in 2024 at the earliest. That is when Manuel Neuer’s current contract is set to expire. In the meantime, Yann Sommer remains the top target for the club.

For now, Bayern want a short-term replacement for Neuer, who is recovering from a broken leg in a skiing accident, with Borussia goalkeeper Yann Sommer. Monchengladbach is the main goal

Would Kobel be a good choice? Right now he’s nowhere near Neuer’s level, but he is the best keeper BVB have had in a long time. Maybe in a few years, he could be the keeper that Bayern Munich need. Until then however, you can be sure that the bosses will explore their options in the transfer market. A year is a long time in footballing terms who knows what might happen?
