FC Bayern, rumours: Nianzou before moving to Seville?
FC Bayern Munich has apparently found a buyer for Tanguy Nianzou. According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, FCB is in “advanced talks” with Sevilla FC about changing the 20-year-old central defender.
According to this, Sevilla hope to be able to finalize the transfer this week, Nianzou is described as the “priority target” of the Spaniards. The Frenchman has been traded as a change candidate at Bayern for a long time, and Joshua Zirkzee and Bouna Sarr are also likely to be allowed to leave the club.
Nianzou’s chances of playing time under FCB coach Julian Nagelsmann have become even smaller in the summer after he only played 22 competitive games last season. With the commitment of Matthijs de Ligt there seems to be little room for the defensive talent. Nianzou has not played a single minute for Bayern this season.
In Seville, he could now succeed Jules Koundé, who has left for Barcelona. The report does not say whether the deal is a loan deal or a purchase. Nianzou only moved from PSG to the Isar in 2020, his contract with Bayern runs until 2024.
