December 22, 2006

BERLIN, Dec 22 (Reuters) - Germany striker Jan Schlaudraff said on Friday that he was leaning towards a transfer to Bayern Munich next season from Alemannia Aachen.

'The trend is going in that direction, that's true,' Schlaudraff, 23, was quoted telling German sport news agency SID after the Ruhr Nachrichten newspaper reported he had agreed to an offer from Bayern from July 1, 2007.

But he added he had not yet signed a contract with Bayern.

The newspaper said he would transfer for a fixed one million euro. Schlaudraff scored the final goal in Aachen's 4-2 victory over holders Bayern in the German Cup on Wednesday.

Werder Bremen, VfB Stuttgart and Bayer Leverkusen have also been trying to sign Schlaudraff.
