Bayern Munich Prepare Shock Transfer Bids For Troy Parrott And Dean Henderson
By Mike Parrott
Bayern Munich are reportedly eyeing up a surprising double transfer swoop for Troy Parrott and Dean Henderson.
The German club seem to have changed their transfer policy in the recent year from targeting young German players, to young players from the British Isles.
And, according to the Daily Mail, both striker Parrott and goalkeeper Henderson are on the radar of the Bundesliga giants.
Troy Parrott, the 17 year-old Irish wonder at Tottenham has been in great form in the past year in the youth leagues and seems to have caught the eye of Bayern Munich.
Parrott has continued his form this season with seven goals in four games in the Tottenham youth ranks. This comes off 19 goals last season in 24 games last season in the youth ranks.

Bayern seem to have taken inspiration from the recent trend of young British players flying over to the Bundesliga such as Jadon Sancho, Rabbi Matondo, and Ademola Lookman.
Parrott's current contract expires in 2021 and Bayern's interest in a young, Premier League-based player not tied down on a long-term contract was seen in the Hudson-Odoi transfer talk.
However, Munich's interest in Premier League youngsters doesn't end with Parrott, with the German giants also eyeing up Manchester United's on-loan goalkeeper Henderson.
Henderson, currently at fifth placed Sheffield United, is currently leading the Premier League in Clean Sheets and Expected Goals Saved.
Bayern seemed to have chosen Henderson as the eventual successor to Manuel Neuer with the Germany captain seeming to slow down near the end of his illustrious career.
The problem with Henderson is that he signed a new contract with his parent club, Manchester United, as recently as this Summer and is already seen as the successor for David De Gea at the Red Devils.
Bayern Munich have not openly talked about these players yet, but knowing their recent policy for Premier League youngsters, this could definitely happen.
