Bayern Munich are reportedly lining up a double raid on the Premier League for French midfielders Tanguy Ndombele and Tiemoue Bakayoko.

The German champions are keen to bolster their midfield ranks this summer ahead of the expected departures of Thiago Alcantara and Javi Martinez, while Corentin Tolisso has also been linked with a move away.

Le 10 Sport claims that Tottenham Hotspur 's Ndombele and Chelsea outcast Bakayoko are two of the names on their list of possible targets.

Ndombele's future has come under scrutiny following an alleged bust-up with manager Jose Mourinho, although Spurs would be keen to recoup most if not all of the club-record £55m they spent to sign him just last summer.

One way around that hefty fee could be a loan deal, which Bayern have utilised to bring in James Rodriguez and Philippe Coutinho from Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively recently.

Bayern could also make a loan bid for Bakayoko, who is valued at €35m (£31.4m) by Chelsea but is deemed surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge and spent the 2019-20 campaign on loan at Monaco.

Bayern could face competition for Bakayoko, though, with Paris Saint-Germain, AC Milan and other clubs in Germany also thought to be interested in his signature.
