Bayern Munich planning to sign third England international in 'shock' transfer after Harry Kane and Eric Dier

Bayern Munich planning to sign third England international in 'shock' transfer after Harry Kane and Eric Dier

Thomas Tuchel could be set to add a third England international to the Bayern Munich squad after Eric Dier and Harry Kane.

Harry Kane may have started a trend in Germany, with Bayern Munich potentially signing another England international after Eric Dier this month.

Usually seeing a player of Kane's calibre making the move to Bayern wouldn't shock many people, but with high-profile England internationals typically remaining in the Premier League the move raised a few eyebrows.

It is becoming more and more common for English players to make the switch abroad, with Jude Bellingham and Jadon Sancho two recent examples of English players succeeding abroad.

A lot like Cristiano Ronaldo's controversial move to Saudi Arabia, Kane making the move to Bayern has highlighted the option for others to join him.

Eric Dier made the move from Spurs this January, and Bayern's English contingent could be about to grow even more with another of Kane's ex-Spurs teammates tipped to join the German club.

According to talkSPORT, Newcastle defender Kieran Trippier is a shock target for the Bundesliga champions.

The report reads: "Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel has put England right back Trippier at the top of their shopping list after missing out on Kyle Walker in the summer."

Newcastle are reportedly open to listening to offers for the 33-year-old as they look to bring in some finances amid FFP concerns.

The summer recruitment of Tino Livramento could also contribute to the club's decision, as the 21-year-old has looked very accomplished across a range of positions this season but is mainly a right-back.

Trippier was Newcastle's first statement signing under their new Saudi ownership, but his form this season has been far from perfect.

The English full-back was at fault for two goals in Everton's 3-0 over Newcastle, and his poor run continued up against Son Heung-min in their next match.

Trippier has played 19 matches in the Premier League this season and still offers considerable attacking output with seven assists, only Liverpool's Mo Salah has more.
