A swap deal involving Chelsea forward Timo Werner and Bayern Munich superstar Robert Lewandowski has allegedly been discussed.
Despite his status as a vital player at the Allianz Arena, Robert Lewandowski has just 19 months remaining on his deal and is known to be open to a new challenge.
Meanwhile, Timo Werner has never fully delivered on his potential at Stamford Bridge, his inconsistency keeping his name associated with a departure from the European champions.
Journalist Ian McGarry has told the Transfer Window Podcast that a swap deal involving the two players has been talked about behind the scene.
McCarry said: “It is certainly the case that he (Pini Zahavi) has offered Lewandowski to Chelsea and [Marina] Granovskaia.
“A move which could include Werner going to Bayern. The prospect for [Thomas] Tuchel and Werner is appealing and is being discussed.”
Despite being at different stages of their career, there is an argument that Robert Lewandowski and Werner will command similar price tags in the current transfer market.
Timo Werner has been also rumoured with a possible move to direct Premier League rivals Manchester United as incoming manager Ralf Rangnick plans to strengthen his offensive end.
