Timo Werner’s agent drops Bayern Munich hint as forward could eye reunion

Chelsea star Timo Werner's agent has admitted he could return to the Bundesliga this summer.

And with his former boss Julian Nagelsmann now in charge of Bayern Munich, Werner could reunite with his old manager at the Bavarian club.

It comes after a testing first season in the Premier League for the striker, who scored just six times in 35 league appearances.

The Blues were heralded after landing the 25-year-old ahead of Liverpool last year as then-manager Frank Lampard desperately looked to improve his attack.

But Werner has been guilty of missing some absolute sitters throughout the campaign while his confidence took several knocks in the process.

In his final season in the Bundesliga, the Germany international was in red-hot form for RB Leipzig.

He scored 34 times under Nagelsmann, who clearly knows how to get the best out of the pacy forward.

And with the young manager now in charge of Bayern Munich, a potential reunion has been tipped.

Werner’s agent Karlheinz Forsterbe has acknowledged the impact Nagelsmann had on his client’s career and has not ruled out a move to the Bundesliga.

He told Sport1 : "Julian let Timo play in a different position at Leipzig. A bit like Thomas Muller at Bayern. Julian and Timo appreciate each other.

"Of course, I don’t yet know what will happen in three or four years. Football is fast moving."

As for Thomas Tuchel, there is no indication that he is prepared to axe Werner, who remained a key part of the side despite his profligacy.

Chelsea are looking to strengthen their attack with Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland top of their wish list.

Prising him away from the Signal Iduna Park outfit will prove tricky, though, especially with Jadon Sancho set to depart.

Dortmund do not want to lose two key players in the same transfer window despite Haaland having a suspected clause in his contract that means he can leave for £68m next year.
