Bayern Munich hold reservations over whether or not Nottingham Forest standout Djed Spence is the man for them.

The Bavarian giants have sent scouts to the City Ground to watch Spence during 2021/22 amid some remarkable form.

Forest have got a tune out of Spence and now Middlesbrough look set to cash in on the 21-year-old for £20 million.

Spence joined Forest in January after the transfer deadline. The Reds submitted a deal sheet for his loan signing and the loan was announced after the transfer deadline.

The Best XI Already NOT Going To The 2022 World Cup

The youngster has been a revelation under Steve Cooper. He has given him the license to really do some damage and his partnership with Brennan Johnson has been fantastic.

Spence has a big part to play in the next few months for Forest. His importance will be evident as the Reds go in search of a top-six finish for the first time in over a decade.

The youngster has showcased his class. He is quick, skilful and has a natural ability to glide past opposition players.

Spence also has Arsenal and Tottenham monitoring his services, with Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund also monitoring his situation.

Bayern aren’t as close to the front of the queue as it had first seemed, however. Journalist Tobi Altschaff has told the Bayern Insider Podcast that they don’t feel he’s worth spending the £20 million on.

Spence must choose next club carefully after Forest spell

The defender has rediscovered himself at the City Ground and he must join a club where he’s guaranteed regular football.

If that club isn’t going to be Bayern then so be it. They added Omar Richards to their ranks from Reading and he’s made just 10 appearances so far this season.

Spence should command a big move. He’s been flying at Forest and even at £20 million he looks like an absolute steal for someone.

The youngster would be welcome at Forest again. As a result, If a club does take him and decide his development would be best served out on loan, the Reds should be at the front of the queue.

Spence is a star and he deserves better than clubs thinking he’s not worth Boro’s asking price.
