Bayern München has interest in pilfering Timo Werner from VfB Stuttgart, according to Bild.

The Rekordmeister are not the only ones sniffing after the youngster, the report naming Borussia Dortmund and VfL Wolfsburg as possible suitors. Werner signed a new, four-year deal with Stuttgart in March, the day of his 18th birthday.

"Some have reached their feelers out," said Stuttgart manager Fredi Bobic.

Bild mentioned that Bayern sporting director Matthias Sammer has long been interested in Werner, who came up through Stuttgart's academy system. Werner has started just 34 career games for die Schwaben over three competitions, scoring four goals and recording five assists.

Julian Green, Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, Ylli Sallahi and Mitchell Weiser were the four teenagers that appeared for Bayern a year ago. With Xherdan Shaqiri and Mario Götze already struggling to find regular starts, Werner's addition would likely not receive a playing-time guarantee from Bayern.

Werner's transfermarkt valuation is €12 million, and it will likely take more than that to pry him away from Stuttgart's clutches.
