Johansson's contract at Nuremburg does not expire until 2002 so a move back to Munich seems unlikely for the Swedish under-21 international.
"We want him to join us as soon as possible," claimed Bayern coach Uli Hoeness.
Johansson joined Bayern as a schoolboy, but made only two appearances before moving to Nuremburg where he has established himself as one of the best defenders in the Division.
Meanwhile, striker Antonio Di Salvo may be on his way out of the club with Cologne rumoured to be interested in the Italian youngster.
Bayern are believed to want to hold on to Di Salvo, but according to Di Salvo's agent, Gunther Rybarczyk, a loan deal may be in the offing.
"Cologne has contacted me and they made a very interesting offer, but I don't think Bayern want to sell him," Rybarczyk said.
Di Salvo has smashed 10 goals in 16 games for Bayern's second string having made only 16 matches for the first team since his arrival in 1999.
