Bayern Munich have reportedly identified Chelsea striker Timo Werner as a potential successor to Robert Lewandowski.
Lewandowski turns 34 very soon. Hence, his long term future is not at Bayern Munich is not certain, this is why the club are looking at the available options to replace him.
Timo Werner hasn’t quite had the impact he was expected to have at Chelsea since his move from RB Leipzig last summer and a move away, especially back to Germany would be seen as another route to hitting top form.
Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann coached Werner at RB Leipzig and according to reports, he has suggested Timo Werner’s name to the Bayern chiefs and the player has already been discussed.
Bayern Munich could attempt to sign Werner in January but the German is meanwhile not interested in pushing for a move just yet, but is ‘open-minded’ about his Chelsea future and is prepared to reconsider his stance at the end of the season. [per 90 min football]
Timo scored 3 goals and had an assist in the 3 games he played for Germany in the most recent international break and he’d be looking to translate and continue that form for his club side for the rest of the season.
