Bayern Munich have joined the chase for Wolfsburg star Martin Petrov.Bayern Munich are the latest team to express an interest in Wolfsburg's star man Martin Petrov.
The in-form winger has become a target of Spanish sides Deportivo La Coruna and Atletico Madrid, but Bayern could bid to keep the player in Germany.
The 25 year old Bulgarian is being head hunted by Bayern as a possible replacement for Ze Roberto, who is yet to sign a new contract for the Bavarian giants.
Petrov has been one of the stars for high-flying Wolfsburg this season, not only providing valuable service for the club's strikers but also adding seven goals from out wide.
The Bulgaria international could leave in January for a projected price of around é¼12 million, but The Wolves will be hopeful that a bidding war will arise.
Atletico, who also have the option of bidding for Birmingham's Jesper Gronkjaer, and Depor are both keen to snap up the talented midfielder - but the prospect of remaining in Bundesliga is likely to appeal to the former Servette star.
