Bayern Munich are reportedly planning a winter swoop for the London giants centre-forward Timo Werner, and a transfer is believed to be already in the works behind the scenes.
The Bavarians are exploring the transfer market for a centre-forward to act as a cover and compete with their striker Robert Lewandowski and probably replace him in the longer term.
The Bundesliga giants are very keen on Timo, who they have identified as a ‘top target’ should they fail to lure Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund or Robert Lewandowski refuses to extend his stay at the club.
Poland international was said to be open to leaving the Bundesliga giants during the summer despite his incredible goal-scoring record, which sees the striker netting eight goals in five matches already. However, with his deal winding up in summer 2023, it has become a big cause of concern for Die Roton.
The perfect replacement would be Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland, whose phenomenal goal scoring record speaks for himself. The Norwegian goal machine is regarded as the next big thing and can seamlessly fill in the shoes left by the potential departure of the Polish centre-forward.
The Bavarians have established a legacy by snatching elite footballers from their league rivals, and Erling Haaland may follow in their footsteps. But any move will cost a lot of fortune and will be subject to a transfer war next summer when the release clause in his deal gets activated. Timo, on the other hand, provides the Bavarians with a relatively cheaper option.
