Bayern Munich tie trio to professional contracts

Bayern Munich have handed out professional contracts to Lovro Zvonarek (19), Noel Aseko Nkili (18) and Adam Aznou (17). Both Zvonarek and Aznou have signed until 2027, while Aseko Nkili has signed a two-year deal until 2026.

“We are delighted that these three boys, who could all still play in the U19s, have signed their first professional contract with FC Bayern,” said Jochen Sauer, director of youth development. “Lovro has already made his first mark in senior football with his first Bundesliga goal. Noel and Adam are regulars with our second team and have repeatedly shown their great footballing potential in their respective positions. We have confidence in all three of them to make their mark with our senior team in the long term.”

Zvonarek joined Bayern Munich in 2022 from Croatian side Slaven Belupo, and is considered one of the biggest talents in the youth system at Bayern. The 19-year-old attacking-midfielder made his Bundesliga debut in January, has played 106 minutes across four Bundesliga games this season, scoring one goal, which came last weekend against Wolfsburg.

Aznou and Aseko Nkili also joined Bayern Munich in 2022, and have both featured heavily in the Rekordmeister’s second team this season.
