A long nine years away from Bayern

The 30-year-old is being tipped for a winter return to Bayern by multiple reports in Germany, including Kicker.

Wagner came through Bayern’s academy system and made four appearances for the first-team during the 2007/08 campaign.

He left to join Duisburg the following season, spending two years in the second tier of German football.

Wagner then joined Werder Bremen in 2009 but didn’t make a single appearance for the first-team until 2010, spending his first year playing for their reserve side.

Spells at Kaiserslautern, Hertha Berlin and Darmstadt followed before he rocked up at Bundesliga renegades Hoffenheim in 2016.

Two strong seasons with Hoffenheim have seen Wagner earn seven caps for Germany, for whom he’s scored five times, and, by the looks of it, convince Bayern to bring him back home.

Now there’s just the small matter of Robert Lewandowski to get past.
