Price tag on Werner will foster negotiations (@GERFootDaily)

According to Bild (as captured by @GERFootDaily), the negotiating between Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig will begin at €60m and have a floor of €40m. Of course, both Bayern and Werner could attempt to wait it out until 2020 for a free transfer, but it is unlikely that Die Roten Bullen will let that happen. A final sale somewhere around €50m is probably what both sides are looking at.

Werner news spoils day for Liverpool fans (Football Fancast)

Let’s just say the rumors formally linking Werner to Bayern did not go over so well with Liverpool fans. It seems that a few Liverpool supporters were looking forward to seeing Werner taking the pitch at Anfield. Below is just one of the reactions:

Brandt and Havertz go under the microscope (@Bundesliga_EN)

Perhaps this is a little more relevant today than earlier in the week, but the Bundesliga did a brief analysis of Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz and Julian Brandt. Havertz, of course, has been linked to Bayern in SportBild’s recent transfer bombshell, while it was also made known that Brandt may be available for a reasonable fee (€25.7m).

Man City scoping Jovic (Transfermarketweb)

Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola is more than a little familiar with the Bundesliga and now he’s looking to Germany in an effort to land his striker of the future. Specifically, Guardiola is looking at Eintracht Frankfurt phenom Luka Jovic.

According to Goal.com, Serbian international striker Luka Jovic (21) is being tracked by Bayern Munich, Barcelona FC, Real Madrid, Chelsea, and Inter Milan. Manchester City has now entered market list as well. The Eintracht Frankfurt hitman, whom the German club is set to buy back from Benfica on a 6 million euros fee, (could) then put up for sale on a much higher sum. (Jovic) is being scouted by Premier League reigning champions indeed.
