There are suggestions that German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich have hijacked the deal for Liverpool target and RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner as they are reportedly preparing to hold talks with him.
The Merseyside outfit have been in the pursuit of Timo Werner for a long time as an attempt for him was made in the last January winter transfer window but a deal did not fall through.
It is suggested that the German Bundesliga outfit are now ready to move in for the player as they are prepared to add strength to the team ahead of the coming season, knowing the quality of the star striker who is also in the Bundesliga.
Timo Werner has shown in the past that he can play at a top level and the fact that he is already with a German Bundesliga side makes him familiar with the league.
However, Timo Werner has a year left to the end of his career and there are no signs that he will reach an agreement with the club over a new deal as he seeks for a new challenge away from the club.
Howbeit, Bayern Munich are expected to move with an offer as soon as the summer transfer window is opened.
