Sebastien Frey has emerged as Bayern Munich's favoured choice to replace Oliver Kahn.

The German international looks likely to leave the Bavarian club in the summer and Bayern see the French custodian as the perfect replacement.

Frey is under contract to Italian side Parma until 2006 but officials from the current Bundesliga champions are ready to meet with the player's representatives in the hope of sealing a deal before the end of the year.

The 23-year-old has been linked with several other teams, including Manchester United, but it now appears Ottmar Hitzfeld's side are favourites to capture the highly rated shot-stopper.
