Bayern Munich are moving into pole position in the race for Basel winger Valentin Stocker.
The 21-year-old has been the subject of much interest in recent months, with Serie A side Udinese battling Borussia Dortmund, Hamburg and Stuttgart for the player’s signature. However, the arrival of Bayern on the scene has complicated matters.
While Udinese were confident of seeing off Bundesliga rivals for Stocker, they are less confident now the Allianz Arena outfit are involved and the Swiss star himself is thought to be very tempted by the prospect of a move to the 2010 Champions League finalists.
Stocker broke through into the Basel team in 2007 and has since gone on to pick up two Swiss Super League titles and two Swiss Cups in addition to representing Switzerland at international level.http://www.insidefutbol.com/2011/03/27/ ... ker/39551/
