In anticipation of the January transfer window, Bayern Munich is reportedly eyeing a potential move for a Paris Saint-Germain right-back.
The German club likely wants to shore up any weaknesses that manager Thomas Tuchel sees in his squad. So, who’s the player on the PSG side that the German side wants?
According to Christian Falk, Nordi Mukiele is on Bayern Munich’s radar to bolster their defensive options and further solidify their squad for the second half of the season.

Furthermore, Mukiele has experience in the Bundesliga, having played for RB Leipzig, which might make him an even more attractive target. However, the potential transfer faces a significant hurdle, as PSG is reluctant to let go of the talented defender.

The French champions are bracing themselves for the absence of Achraf Hakimi, who is set to represent Morocco in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) that will begin next month.
With Hakimi’s departure leaving a void in PSG’s defensive lineup, Mukiele’s departure could exacerbate the situation for the Parisian club.
