Bayern Munich interested in 17-year-old West Brom wonderkid Reyes Cleary with transfer eyed after impressing scouts

BAYERN MUNICH are reportedly plotting a swoop for West Brom's teenage starlet Reyes Cleary.

The 17-year-old was watched by the Bundesliga champions against Stoke City's U23s last month.

And their scouts are set to check the striker out again as their interest mounts, according to the Daily Mail.

Cleary has caught the eye with an impressive 14 goals in 12 matches this term.

West Brom are desperate to keep hold of the ace, although he still has not penned a pro contract at the Hawthorns.

They now face a big challenge to convince him his future is with them rather than at one of Europe's biggest clubs.

Bayern are not the only side taking an interest in Cleary, who has already been likened to a young Romelu Lukaku, with the Newcastle United also checking his development closely.

Fellow Premier League outfit Crystal Palace are watching him also along with German clubs Schalke, Borussia Dortmund and Hoffenheim.

Cleary is yet to make his first-team debut at West Brom but they want to tie him down to a long-term deal.

Despite their reputation for developing young talents, the Baggies have lost several starlets over recent years.

Louie Barry, now at Aston Villa, was snapped up by Barcelona in 2019 while Nathan Ferguson headed to Crystal Palace last year.
