Bayern Munich look like they could be stealing the march on the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham in a bid to sign Benfica’s Jota.

Portuguese outlet O Jogo report that the Bundesliga heavyweights have had scouts keeping a close eye on him in recent weeks.

It is claimed by O Jogo that Jota is a player that they feel can step up to the mark instantly.

Premier League trio Arsenal, Liverpool and Spurs have all been monitoring the player’s progress, but it seems that Bayern are currently ahead of the chasing pack.

The Portuguese winger has a €30 million release clause in his contract that potential suitors could try to activate, but Benfica are hoping to increase that fee and have opened talks to try and reach an agreement with the player.
