Bayern Munich are reportedly ready to rival Liverpool in the race to sign RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner during the summer transfer window.

Bayern Munich are reportedly prepared to launch a big-money bid for RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner.

With the Germany international's contract containing a release clause, a number of top European clubs are considering an offer for the 23-year-old.

Liverpool are said to be the frontrunners for the attacker, with both manager Jurgen Klopp and the player said to be interested in pushing through a deal.

However, according to Kicker, Bayern continue to monitor the situation ahead of attempting to sign the key man of one of their direct rivals.

While Robert Lewandowski is not expected to leave the Allianz Arena, Werner's versatility means that he could play off either flank.

Werner has netted 23 goals from 28 outings in the Bundesliga and Champions League this season.
