Jann-Fiete Arp (born 6 January 2000) is a German footballer who plays as a forward for Bayern Munich II. He has also represented Germany at the youth international level. The young German football player, who was seen by many as the successor of Robert Lewandowski, is at a dead end.
When Bayern pays a young and talented domestic player, that player is expected to become one of the most important in the club in the coming years. As much as three million was paid to HSV for Jan-Fite Arpa, and today this striker is one of the players with whom the Bavarians do not know what to do …
Although he is only 21 years old, it is clear that Arp will never be a player for the first team of Bayern. In fact, the German club now believes that he is not a player for another team, a team that dropped out of the third rank of German football.
The entire football public is in shock. The guy who started playing for Hamburg in the Bundesliga before his 18th birthday is now not good enough even for the third rank of the competition. Something happened, Fite disappeared somewhere between youth and senior football, and Bayern is in big trouble.
Although they trusted him in previous years, since he signed a contract with the biggest club in the country in February 2019, now he is obviously a surplus. At one time, Arp registered one official and several friendly matches for the first team of Bayern!
” He’s a good player and he has an impressive career ahead of him. I like footballers who do not show fear, like him “, said the Brazilian Marcelo, a long-time Real Madrid player, after the match he played against Arp.
The biggest problem in the story of Jan-fite Arp is his salary. When the long-term contract was signed, Bayern made a big mistake. By the end of the contract, which expires in 2024, Arp should earn over five million euros. That money does not have teams in the third rank of the competition, not even many second division teams. Even if they had money, the question was whether they were interested in a man who scored only five goals in as many as 31 games in the third league of Germany!
Arp was part of the German under-17 team, scoring seven goals in the 2017 UEFA European Under-17 Championship. On 7 February 2019, it was announced that Arp would join Bayern Munich at the beginning of either the 2019–20 season or the 2020–21 season. He ultimately joined Bayern Munich on 1 July 2019. After a disappointing first season in which he failed to make a single Bundesliga appearance, Arp was made a permanent member of the club’s secondary team in order to receive more playing practice.
