TIMO WERNER is reportedly '70 per cent likely' to swap Chelsea for Bayern Munich next summer to reunite with Julian Nagelsmann.
The 25-year-old only departed the Bundesliga last year to link up with the Blues from RB Leipzig, but he could be set to return to his native Germany.
Werner – without a goal from his three Blues outings this term – mustered just six Premier League strikes from 35 games last campaign.
And with the West Londoners bringing in Romelu Lukaku for £97.5million, Werner's chances in the first-team could be limited.
According to German news outlet Sport1, all signs point towards a move to Bavaria where he could potentially replace Robert Lewandowski.
The Poland international, 33, is understood to be keen for a fresh challenge away from Bayern after seven trophy-laden years with the Munich outfit.
It has been said that former RB Leipzig boss Nagelsmann, now manager at Bayern, is in regular contact with Werner.
He is claimed to be Bayern's alternative to Erling Haaland should they fail to prise the £64m striker away from Borussia Dortmund.

Werner's name has been discussed among the Allianz Arena hierarchy who would welcome him at the club.
Should he join Bayern, Werner would not only be reunited with Nagelsmann, but also former Leipzig team-mates Dayot Upamencano and Marcel Sabitzer.
Despite Werner's struggles in front of goal for Chelsea, the 2021 Champions League winner has been in inspired form for Germany.
The centre-forward scored in all three of Germany's World Cup qualifiers during the international break.
Though he was guilty of another horrendous miss from close range in Wednesday's 4-0 win against Iceland.
Prior to bagging his 19th goal for Germany, the ex-Stuttgart ace failed to tuck away a chance from around seven yards out.
And fans were quick to have their say on social media.
One quipped: “Keeper wasn’t even troubled enough to take a look.”
Another remarked: "Three guarantees in life: Death, taxes and Werner missing open goals.”
