With Ivica Olic expected to leave the Allianz Arena this summer, Bayern Munich have turned their attention towards replacements.
And on Monday, youth co-ordinator and scout Bjorn Andersson confirmed the Bundesliga giants' interest in Manchester City-contracted starlet John Guidetti, and Montpellier attacker Olivier Giroud.
"At the moment, we are watching Guidetti and a striker from Montpellier, Giroud," Andersson told Swedish source Aftonbladet.
The 19-year-old Guidetti is currently on loan at Feyenoord, where he has scored 17 goals in 15 Eredivisie appearances this season.
An earlier report from De Telegraaf claimed that the Bavarians sent a delegation to De Kuip on Sunday to see Guidetti in action in Feyenoord's Eredivisie match against Vitesse. The scouts were treated to a match-winning performance from the Sweden Under-21 star, who netted a hat-trick in a 3-1 victory.
Bayern are expected to have some difficulty convincing the prolific Guidetti to move to the Allianz Arena: the player has a contract with City until the summer of 2014, and recently told Goal.com that he dreams of succeeding at the Citizens.
Giroud, meanwhile, remains a viable option. The 25-year-old leads Ligue 1 in scoring with 16 goals in 22 appearances. His contract is set to expire in 2014.
