Coman’s Bayern Munich contract expires next summer which means he’ll become a free agent if a new contract is not agreed in the coming months.

The Frenchman is presently reluctant to accept Bayern Munich’s proposal for a new contract as he’s reportedly keen on a move elsewhere. The current situation has alerted some big clubs in Europe with Barcelona and Chelsea being credited with interest in the France international.

According to reports, Coman is top on Barca’s list of potential signings and the player is said to be highly admired by incoming manager Xavi Hernandez who reportedly sees the Frenchman as a dream signing.

Coman is also seen as a potential replacement for his compatriot Ousmane Dembele who might be leaving the Barcelona next summer. Dembele also has less than a year left on his contract and there’s a possibility that the France international would seek a move elsewhere when his contract expires next summer.

Chelsea on the other hand are looking to bolster their attacking options and Kingsley Coman is the latest name being linked to the English club with the likes of Leroy Sané and Eden Hazard being linked in recent times.
