It's looking increasingly likely that Werner will leave RB Leipzig in the summer, particularly after club boss Oliver Mintzlaff stated on Saturday that the striker has indicated that he doesn't want to extend his contract beyond 2020.
And while Bayern remain favourites to land Werner, clubs like Liverpool, PSG and Real Madrid shouldn't be counted out of the battle for the German international, according to Bild.
It has been rumored that Bayern will have to pay at least €40 million for the 23-year-old, but the Bavarians could be forced to spend more if they end up being part of a bidding race.
According to Kicker, no club have made an official approach for Werner yet, though - not even Bayern.
Werner has made 31 appearances for RB Leipzig this season with 17 goals and six assists to his name.
