Borussia Dortmund join Bayern Munich interest for Chelsea striker Werner

Borussia Dortmund are eyeing a summer move for Chelsea striker Timo Werner.

Werner is viewed at BVB as a replacement for Erling Haaland should he leave at season's end, says BILD.

However, with Werner said to be on a salary of around £17m-a-year, a pay-cut would be necessary for him to move to Westfalenstadion.

Bayern Munich have also been linked with the Germany international, who has been bumped down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge following Romelu Lukaku's arrival.

Werner did not come off the bench in the 1-0 win against Zenit St Petersburg on Tuesday and has only played nine minutes of club football since Lukaku's return to the club from Inter.
