Bayern Munich have agreed a deal with Timo Werner for the striker to move from RB Leipzig to the Allianz Arena, according to Sport Bild.
If so, the Bavarians would be continuing the recent trend of picking up top talents from other Bundesliga clubs, and Werner would follow in the footsteps of Robert Lewandowski, Mats Hummels (both joined from Borussia Dortmund), Mario Gotze (joined from Dortmund but returned there), Leon Goretzka, Manuel Neuer (both from Schalke 04), Serge Gnabry (Werder Bremen), and Niklas Sule (Hoffenheim).
Werner was previously linked with Liverpool with former teammate Naby Keita and the Reds forward Sadio Mane publicly advising him to come to Anfield, where he’d be working with former Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp.
It seems Werner has chosen Bayern nonetheless, but it’s worth bearing in mind that the story comes in the middle of the two-leg Champions League clash between Bayern and Liverpool, with the score tied at 0-0 after the first leg in England.
Meanwhile, there has been no contact between Bayern and RB Leipzig yet regarding a potential deal.
