Bayern Munich are emerging as surprise candidates for Brighton and Hove Albion star Tariq Lamptey.
The 20-year-old has been in excellent form with the Premier League this season.
Now Sky Sports is reporting that Bayern, German and European champions, hope to sign the player this transfer window.
There is a week left before the window shuts, so any deal will have to be done quickly.
Bayern want a right back, and failed to sign Sergino Dest, who is moving to Barcelona instead.
