An impressive World Cup-winning campaign with France in 2018 followed by a stellar season with Stuttgart convinced Bayern to shell out more than £31m on Benjamin Pavard.
And while the versatile defender has pretty much been a mainstay in the Bayern backline under both Niko Kovac and Hansi Flick, many would suggest Pavard is the 'man to target' in this brilliant Bayern side; the weak link if you will.
Yes, his ludicrous driven pass during his
Nevertheless, the World Cup-winner is still a fine footballer whose versatility is invaluable to the Bayern defence.
And with the lack of cover in this position, right-back is certainly an area the Die Roten hierarchy will want to target in the next window. The addition of elite talent, meanwhile, could allow Pavard to shift over to a right centre-back position - a role he's starred in previously.
Real Madrid's Odriozola was brought in on a six-month loan deal to provide emergency cover for Pavard.
The Spaniard hasn't exactly had the most enjoyable of time in Munich, however, playing just 63 Bundesliga minutes thus far after breaking Ivan Perisic's ankle in training with a heavy challenge.
It was a great 60 odd minutes, mind.
Nevertheless, with Los Blancos' right-back slot set to be a mightily competitive one when/if Achraf Hakimi returns from his Borussia Dortmund
Potential Price: £20m - £25m
The Moroccan is the epitome of a modern-day full-back, unlike Pavard.
Following an electric two-year loan spell at Signal Iduna Park, Hakimi is set to have Europe's elite at his feet in the next transfer window. The Athletic have reported Bayern as admirers of the 21-year-old along with Juventus
While he's starred recently as a wing-back in Lucien Favre's 3-4-3, Hakimi's shown he can excel in a number of roles, from right-back to left-wing. Rapid, deceptively strong, defensively sound, lethal in both phases of transition and blessed with astute decision-making in the final third, it's fair to say Hakimi is a superstar.
The sight of the Moroccan and Alphonso Davies marauding down the Allianz flanks is one that'll tickle the salivary glands of football purists.
Potential Price: £55m - £70m
Bayern were believed to be in for Cancelo while the Portugal international was still plying his trade in Turin and after enduring a difficult first season at Manchester City
While his lack of defensive positioning and awareness make him more frail than others defensively, his attacking prowess is what makes Cancelo such an exciting player. Simply put, he has all the attributes of a traditional winger.
If Bayern are to sign a right-back in the mould of Hakimi or Cancelo, though, Flick will have to find a system that reaches an equilibrium in terms of allowing his full-backs attacking freedom, but also ensuring his side aren't exposed on the counter due to their high positioning. Pep's 2-3-5 anyone?
A hefty fee would also be expected due to City's unwillingness to let Cancelo depart.
Potential Price: £65m - £80m
Bayern already dipped their toe in the Henrichs bucket before he made the switch to Monaco from Bayer Leverkusen in 2018.
And despite the struggles of his side, the 23-year-old established himself as a key performer for
A raw talent who'll certainly need to be nurtured if he makes the step up to a major European power, 19-year-old Tavares would be an interesting option for Die Roten.
In his relatively short sample size at a senior level - making just 21 career appearances for the Benfica first-team - Tavares has proven to be a technically sound customer who's comfortable in the build-up phase and is adept at making both under and overlapping runs in the final third - making him somewhat unpredictable.
He's nowhere near the finished article but his upside his huge, playing second-fiddle to Pavard would be ideal for Tavares' development and it's hard to envisage Benfica demanding such a huge fee for the teenager's services.
Potential Price: £10m - £20m
