Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick appears to have opened the door for a move to Timo Werner. The striker is reportedly available this year.
Flick was discussing things in a press interview via video this week. Per SportBild, the Bayern boss admitted that the team may play with two strikers next season after questions about Werner.
That’s enough for SportBild to say the door is open as Flick is a ‘great supporter’ of Werner’s. Playing with two strikers would put the major doubt over Werner at Bayern to bed.
There is a world-class striker at the club already, of course, in Robert Lewandowski. It would therefore be tough for any striker to get games at the club – as long as they stuck with a one-striker formation.
But Flick is clearly open to changing that and a Lewandowski/Werner strike force is certainly enticing.
What RTK has to say
This should worry Liverpool as that major doubt applies to them, too. Liverpool have a well-established and highly successful front-three – they won’t change it easily.
Bayern don’t have an established strike-force and can afford to shift things around. In contrast, it’s highly debatable whether Liverpool should, let alone could.
Reports have linked Liverpool with a move for £50m Werner for quite some time, such as the Express. But if Bayern can guarantee him game time at the elite level, the Reds may struggle to win this race.
And with the Bayern boss so openly admitting he could change formation, that struggle looks very real.
