Chelsea and Man City are keeping a close eye on Kingsley Coman, whose future could be affected by the arrival of Philippe Coutinho at Bayern Munich. France international enjoyed the best of his four campaigns at Allianz Arena last term, scoring ten goals in 30 matches in all tournaments.
However, the German club have been replenishing their wings this transfer window, following the departures of long-serving stars Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery. Ivan Perisic has already arrived on loan from Inter Milan, and Coutinho is expected to follow on a similar formula from the Catalan club.
Bavarians announced following their 2-2 draw with Hertha Berlin on Friday night that they had reached a deal with the former Liverpool attacker, which, critically also secures them an option to make the agreement permanent at the end of the campaign. Last season he played 54 matches, scored 11 goals and provided five assists in all tournaments.
Reports suggest Bundesliga Champions are understood to be paying nearly €30m for the season-long loan, and will then pay Blaugrana further €70m in summer 2020 to sign him permanently. His arrival will likely push Kingsley down the pecking order, and Blues and Citizens will be monitoring the situation.
The 23-year-old winger joined Bayern Munich from Juventus in 2017 with a €22m deal. He became a crucial figure for the club and scored many incredible goals since joining. Last season French forward played 30 matches, netted ten goals and made seven assists in all competitions. Kingsley Coman is a regular member of the Les Bleus squad.
