Choupo-Moting considers Bayern exit

Cameroon international Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is reportedly considering leaving Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich for Qatar.

Choupo-Moting, whose contract runs until 2023, joined the Bundesliga giants on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain in 2020 as Robert Lewandowski’s back-up.

The 33-year-old Indomitable Lions star has featured 57 times for the Bavarians and scored 18 goals.

His reported exit comes as speculation is rife that Bayern Munich are keen to lure Liverpool’s Sadio Mane to beef up their attacking department. With the expected departure of Lewandowski, a gaping gap could be left in the club’s striking force.

Tottenham considering move for Udogie

Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur are keen on signing Nigerian prospect Destiny Udogie.

The 19-year-old spent a loan season – from Hellas Verona - with Udinese last season and predominantly played at left-back as he featured in 35 Seria A games.

Should the move happen eventually, it will put Sergio Reguilon’s future at the North London club in more doubt.
