Bavaria with interest in Vogt?

good enough for Bavaria?

Jerome Boateng had to pass with frequent injuries in the last years. There were also a lot more mistakes in terms of performance than at his peak times in 2013 and 2014, but the world champion is still credited with a different format than Kevin Vogt. The man from Hoffenheim ends the season with outstanding results. 91 per cent of his passes found the team-mate, and his 2,474 ball contacts are the best in the league. The first time Vogt was in the squad for a Bundesliga match was in March 2009, and his opponent: FC Bayern Munich. However, he only made his debut for VfL Bochum a week later. Following the Bochum period, he matured with FC Augsburg and 1 FC Cologne. He was a regular player for both clubs and distinguished himself above all through his variable employability. Vogt can play as a central defender as well as a right defender and defensive midfielder. This flexibility is said to have inspired Niko Kovac as well. Whether Vogt really has the quality to play for the Bavarians and to compete with the best in the premier league will become apparent when Boateng has made a decision.

Kevin Vogt from TSG 1899 Hoffenheim should be on FC Bayern’s wish list. Allegedly the new coach Niko Kovac wants the 26-year-old central defender in his team. However, the change would only make sense if another central defender leaves the Munich team. According to media reports, this could be Boateng.

There have been rumours of a change around the world champion for several weeks. Before the cup final Boateng himself confirmed that everything was open. “Foreign countries are always interesting. You don’t have many chances. Everyone has to decide for himself whether he wants to gain experience again”. His contract with the Munich team runs until 2021, with Mats Hummels and Niklas Süle, two established central defenders, joined by Lukas Mai, who made his first appearances at the end of the season. Javi Martinez, who usually plays on the six, can also be deployed at the defence centre. But if Boateng would really go, the Bavarians will probably try to find a replacement. While a rumour recently circulated about Milan’s Leonardo Bonucci, the focus is now to be on Kevin Vogt, a Bundesliga player. Vogt would already be the fourth Hoffenheimer the Bavarians would sign up within only one year.

Rudy, Wagner, Süle, Gnabry, Vogt?

In addition to Sebastian Rudy and Niklas Süle, Sandro Wagner also came to Munich in winter 2018. Serge Gnabry, whom the Bavarians had signed, was on loan to Hoffenheim last season. Kevin Vogt would now be the fifth player with a Hoffenheim past, and David Alaba was also briefly loaned to TSG. The captain of the Kraichgau team has no exit clause and would probably be relatively expensive. Uli Hoeneß had announced on the sidelines of the championship celebration that he would not make any major transfers. “We won’t invest anything more, but will make our players play better”. However, Hoeneß also emphasized that this statement would only remain valid if no player would leave the club. A departure from Boateng is probably tantamount to looking for a replacement.
