It appears Bayern Munich are eyeing up another English starlet.
The German champions were hellbent on snapping up Callum Hudson-Odoi during the January transfer window, but they failed in their pursuit. Chelsea refused his sale.

Bayern Munich are long-time admirer of the 18-year-old prospect who is regarded as one of the best talents in the Gunners Hale End academy.
Amaechi is an exciting dribbler with a dangerous left-peg. Arsenal's official club website describe him as a classy player on the ball.

"2017/18 proved to be a breakthrough year for Xavier. Not only did he show his quality for the under-18s, scoring 10 goals in 15 appearances, including five in the FA Youth Cup, he also made six starts in the Premier League 2, recording three assists as one of the side's main sources of creativity," the website adds.
Bayern Munich aren't the only team monitoring Amaechi. It's believed clubs from Spain, Italy and France are tracking his services ahead of potentially tabling a bid in the summer.
This season, he's scored three goals and supplied five assists for Arsenal under-23's.
Arsenal handed Amaechi a professional contract on his 17th birthday. He's contracted to the club until 2022.
Following the success of Jadon Sancho at Borussia Dortmund, Bayern are keen on boasting an English player with the club keeping tabs on Hudson-Odoi and Amaechi.
