The teenage forward—who is currently on loan at the Allianz Arena from Juventus—has revealed in an interview with Kicker [via L’Equipe] that he is keen on signing on permanently with the Bavarian heavyweights.
“I knew that I could better use my qualities here [in Bavaria] than in Turin,” the 19-year-old began, speaking to the German media.
“I’d like to stay for a long time. The club should sign me, I hope for it, it’s my wish.”
Coman’s unswerving desire to stay at Bayern may come as bad news for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger.
The French coach revealed at the beginning of the month that he had the opportunity to sign the player—but opted not to take it—and could have looked to have moved for the talented youngster at the end of the year when his loan spell at Bayern comes to an end.
