Bayern Munich ‘plotting £60m move for Crystal Palace star’


Bayern Munich are reportedly interested in signing Crystal Palace midfielder Adam Wharton this summer.

The 20-year-old has quickly established himself as a first-team star for the Eagles since completing his £22.5m transfer from Blackburn Rovers in January.

Wharton spent just 18 months in the first team at Blackburn before moving to the Premier League with Palace, where he has started 14 of his 15 appearances in the top flight, registering three assists.

Operating as a deep-lying playmaker, Wharton has received penalty of plaudits for his performances at Palace since the turn of the year, including a man-of-the-match display in a memorable 1-0 victory at Liverpool last month.

Wharton has recently emerged as a dark horse to make Gareth Southgate‘s 26-man England squad for Euro 2024, and he is now being eyed up by one of Europe’s biggest clubs ahead of the summer transfer window.

Bayern eye big-money swoop for Wharton

According to The Sun, Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are ‘ready’ to make a summer move for Wharton and are ‘desperate’ to lure him to the Allianz Arena after missing out on his signature in January.

The report claims that the Bavarians, as well as Chelsea, had previously worked on a deal to sign the youngster, but they were ultimately beaten by Palace who could offer immediate first-team football.
