RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner has been linked to Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Real Madrid.

The 23 year old striker has scored 23 goals in 25 games as RB Leipzig sit top of the Bundesliga.

Bayern’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has insisted that Werner will not be joining Bayern Munich because they have Robert Lewandowski.

“Timo Werner is a good player who played an excellent first half of the season,” he told BILD.

“However, we have Robert Lewandowski. Robert is a striker who fits our style of play perfectly.

“Robert has the ability to orientate himself in a tight space, the technology to move in tight spaces and to find extraordinary solutions with the ball.

“With his speed, Timo Werner needs more room, which he had in the system that Leipzig played. The system at RB has now changed, but it is still not as tight at the front as it is with us.”
