Bayern Munich eyeing shock transfer for Premier League defender to replace Inter Milan-bound Benjamin Pavard | The Sun

August 26, 2023

BAYERN MUNICH are keeping tabs on Fulham right-back Kenny Tete.

The German giants view the Dutch 27-year-old as a potential replacement for Benjamin Pavard who is set to join Inter Milan.


Tete, who arrived at Fulham in the summer of 2020, has one-year left on his deal.

Bayern were also interested in Tete back in 2016.

He would be a good fit in Thomas Tuchel’s back line given he played alongside centre-back Matthijs de Ligt at Ajax.

It would be a major blow to Fulham who have just seen talisman Aleksandar Mitrovic sign for Saudi Arabian side Al-Hilal for a club-record fee of around £50m.

Tete joined Fulham in 2020 from Lyon and signed a four-year contract.

He has gone on to make 74 league appearances for the club, scoring three goals.

Pavard had been a target of Manchester United but they missed out on his signature to Inter.

The defender missed training today with illness as confirmed by Bayern.
