Bayern Munich have sensationally discussed the possibility prising Timo Werner from his difficult spell at Chelsea. The German has not quite hit the heights expected of him following his £47million transfer last year and has already found himself down the pecking order.
There was plenty of hype about Werner when he initially arrived at Stamford Bridge. The 25-year-old had scored 28 Bundesliga goals for RB Leipzig in the season before he joined.
But he netted just six times in the Premier League for Chelsea last term. Jorginho registered one more and each of them were penalties.
Werner registered 11 strikes in all competitions, and one was the clinching goal in the Champions League semi-final second leg victory over Real Madrid.
However, that was not enough to convince Thomas Tuchel not to make an elite goalscorer a top transfer window priority.

The player’s agency, Sport360, also advise Bayern stars Niklas Sule, Dayot Upamecano and new boss Julian Nagelsmann.
Last month, Blues boss Tuchel suggested that Lukaku’s arrival will help Werner.
“I truly believe that this can be a big upgrade for [Werner],” Tuchel said after Lukaku’s arrival.
“Having the attention on Romelu, who likes to be in the centre of the pitch and to fight physically with defenders, can create space for Timo.
“[With] the position, he can play a bit wider than he used to play for us last season.
“To play around Romelu, who is like the reference as a number nine, he hopefully gives Timo the freedom and the space to play around him and feel that it’s easier to find more dangerous spaces and start scoring again.”
