Fortuna Dusseldorf after Bayern Munich's Takeshi Usami -Report

Takashi Usami - Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich's Takashi Usami is the object of interest from 2. Bundesliga side Fortuna Dusseldorf, according to local newspaper Munchner Merkur.
As reported last month, Usami has expressed unhappiness with his lack of playing time at Bayern. He has six goals in nine matches with the reserves, but just 39 minutes with the first team including a goal in a recept Pokal match.He has also reportedly received inquiries from Augsburg, who are struggling near the bottom of the table, as well as Nurnberg.A move to Dusseldorf would allow Usami to play with two of the second division's top scorers in Maximillian Beister at right wing and Sascha Rosler at attacking midfielder. Presumably the 19-year-old would play at left wing.The transfer could also be of benefit to the starlet as he adjusts to life in Germany. Dusseldorf has a large Japanese community and Usami would be closer to fellow Japanese players Atsuto Uchida at Schalke and Shinji Kagawa at Borussia Dortmund.The move would not be without difficulties, however; in order to facilitate another loan, Bayern would have to exercise their option to buy Usami's contract from J-League side Gamba Osaka.
