Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola is reportedly interested in signing Athletic Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte at the end of the season.
The French centre-back is widely regarded as one of the most talented teenagers in European football, with his performances this season drawing a host of outside interest.
According to Kicker, Bayern are prepared to make their move at the end of the campaign and will offer in the region of £16m for a player who is under contract in Spain until 2018.
The same report, however, has claimed that Bilbao will hold out for closer to £28m for the 19-year-old.
Barcelona are also believed to be in the running, but their recent transfer ban has scuppered any potential move.
