Kingsley Coman is reportedly having doubts about joining Bayern Munich on a permanent basis once his loan move from Juventus ends this summer. The player’s uncertainty is said to be prompting interest from Premier League trio Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City.

A report from French source Le Parisien (h/t has detailed why Coman is unsure about making a full-time switch to Bundesliga giants Bayern: “Coman has failed to establish himself as a first-team regular under new boss Carlo Ancelotti, while the club’s interest in Bayer Leverkusen winger Julian Brandt has also left the Frenchman worried about his long-term future.”

The same report named City as the club currently at the front of the congested queue pursuing Coman. It makes sense for the Citizens to be leading the way for Coman, since it was manager Pep Guardiola who originally brought the winger to Germany during his time in charge at Bayern.

It also makes sense for some of the biggest clubs in England’s top flight to be keen on a gifted youngster boasting true star potential. Still just 20, Coman is a terrific wide attacker with the pace, trickery, power and natural flair to be a match-winner on the biggest stages.

Yet the young Frenchman has still found it difficult to convince Bayern of his worth. In some ways his struggles are hardly a surprise, though.

After all, Bayern do boast an embarrassment of riches on the flanks, including veteran pair Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery. They are most often supplemented by super-fast Brazilian Douglas Costa.
