[Options] Why does this Deutsche Bank LEAP call look so cheap?

If I use the ask price of $4.55, the $5 Jan 2021 calls seems relatively cheap because the stock is currently trading at $8.77, so actually paying around 78 (mid-market price would make this 60 cents) cents for time value that's almost two years out?

Is DB really going to be forced to merged with Commerzbank AG?
