Timo Werner is desperate to move to Bayern and Sport Bild is reporting in its weekly magazine that the Bavarians have entered into preliminary talks with Werner’s agent, Karl-Heinz Foster:
Karl-Heinz Forster has waited in vain for a call from Bayern in the last waking hours. His client Timo Werner also indicated an interest in Bavaria and conversations were conducted. Since then, however, little happened due to the opening Pokal match at Energie Cottbus.
Could Werner finally move to Bayern? kicker thinks it will happen next summer:
Is Timo Werner staying at RB Leipzig or is he leaving? According to kicker information, the striker still does not want to extend his contract expiring in 2020, although there is no prospect of a timely departure. The Saxons had sought clarity before the start of the season.
Thus, the 23-year-old national player will stay with the Leipzigers according to the current status and could change free transfer next summer. As an interested party is Bayern Munich.
Reports out of Spain, however, indicate that Valencia is streaking in to make a last-minute offer. Per AS, Valencia is about to lose striker Rodrigo Moreno to Atlético de Simeone and needs a replacement:
The fact is that with the progress of Rodrigo, Valencia has accelerated contacts to close as soon as possible two attack players. And in those, a name has emerged that pleases Valencia: Timo Werner, German striker, 23, of the Red Bull Leipzig.
The German attacker would enter as Rodrigo’s replacement, although his club will ask for a high financial consideration for letting him go. Werner, at 23, has already played 25 games with the German national team and has materialized 10 goals. Valencia should spend a large part of the €55 million (plus five in incentives) that it will receive for Rodrigo if it wants to jump for the German. It remains to be known if (Valencia management) wants to invest all of Rodrigo’s transfer money in a player.
