Bayern Munich need to strengthen their attack this summer.
It’s claimed by British media that Bayern Munich are leading the race for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.
The 22-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Germany international was signed by RB Leipzig in July 2016 from VfB Stuttgart for a fee of 14 million euros.
Werner made 100 appearances across all competitions for RB Leipzig, scoring 55 goals and supplying 20 assists in return.
The 22-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in Germany.
As a member of Germany national football team, Werner won 23 caps and he scored 9 goals.
Niko Kovac is a long term admirer of Werner and believes he can get the most out of the Germany international.
Timo Werner would provide a good variety to Bayern Munich’s attack.
According to the Tribalfootball, “Bayern Munich are regarded as being ahead of Liverpool in the battle for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner. Werner has been told by RBL boss Ralf Rangnick to make a decision about a new deal – with plans to sell this summer if he chooses not to put pen to paper. Liverpool are watching developments closely, however BILD says it is Bayern who are the biggest influence on Werner’s hesitation. This despite the player admitting ambitions of playing in England in the future. Tied to RBL until 2020, Werner was offered a new deal before Christmas.”

If Bayern Munich are genuinely interested, a deal would not be impossible to complete.
Signing the 22-year-old in the summer transfer window would be a masterstroke from Niko Kovac.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Bayern.
It will be interesting to see whether Bayern will make their move during the summer transfer window.
