Bayern München will consider signing Yannick Ferreira Carrasco if it turns out that their number one target, Leroy Sané, won't come to Allianz Arena from Manchester City, Sport Bild understands.

The 25-year-old joined Chinese side Dalian Yifang from Atlético Madrid last year and now wants to return to Europe.

Carrasco, who has been heavily linked with Arsenal, would cost around €30 million - a transfer fee that Bayern would be able to pay without problems.

The Bavarians have already spent €118 million on new players, and they still have at least €85 million available for further transfers, according to Sport Bild.

Bayern also see Julian Draxler and Callum Hudson-Odoi as possible alternatives to Sané, as per the report.

However, Draxler recently ruled out leaving PSG this summer while it's looking increasingly likely that Hudson-Odoi will sign a new deal with Chelsea.

Additionally, Sport Bild estimates that Timo Werner will 'most likely' join Bayern from RB Leipzig.

The 23-year-old only wants to come to Bayern, and if the Bavarians don't reach an agreement with RB Leipzig, he would be able to make the switch to Allianz Arena on a free transfer when his contract expires in 2020.
