Bayern Munich have been left unimpressed by Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool’s approach for Germany international Timo Werner, according to a recent report by Kicker, via journalist Manuel Veth on Twitter.
The #Bayern bosses have registered that #LFC have approached Timo Werner to potentially join in the summer and they are less then pleased. They are keeping an eye on the development. Bayern could have signed the #RBLeipzig striker for €25m last summer (kicker).

The Anfield outfit have reportedly continued their long-term pursuit of the RB Leipzig star, with a summer transfer mooted.
Die Roten could still make a move, however, and are continuing to monitor the current situation, not finding themselves amused by the prospect of Timo potential becoming a Red.
They had an opportunity to land him for €25 million the previous summer, but the transfer never came to fruition.
Liverpool bringing in Werner could be another significant piece of transfer business given what a potent attacking player he has matured into.
The star has 25 goals to his name for Leipzig this campaign, not to mention his ability to play anywhere across the final third.
In Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, Liverpool have three world-class stars, with 34 PL goals between them, but there is then a significant drop down in quality in the club’s front-line.
Timo could add competition in that respect, also having the ability to thrive in a 4-3-2-1 system alongside Firmino, Mane and Salah. He could lead the line, allowing Roberto to drop deep, or equally play in one of the wide roles.
It is important to have world-class cover for Senegal international and former Roma player when they play in the Africa Cup of Nations early next year, too.
