Bayern Munich are set to offer a new contract to Robert Lewandowski, but it will not affect their plans to sign Liverpool linked Timo Werner in the summer.
Werner is expected to be a wanted man at the end of the season and several top European clubs are interested in snaring him away from RB Leipzig in the coming months.
Liverpool are one of the clubs who have been keeping tabs on him and some of their current players have also talked openly about attracting Werner to Merseyside in the future.
But Bayern Munich are in pole position to sign him and already have an agreement in place with his agent to get their hands on the Germany international.
The German champions are also planning to offer a new contract Lewandowski in the coming months, but according to German magazine Sport Bild, it will not have an effect on their plans to sign Werner.
The Bavarians do not want to lose the Pole’s experience and are set to offer him a new contract until 2023.
But they have indicated to Werner’s entourage that he would not be treated as back-up to Lewandowski if he joins Bayern Munich in the summer.
Bayern Munich could use the duo together in the same team, or play Werner just behind the Pole, or as a wide forward.
