Newcastle have reportedly been in regular contact with Timo Werner’s agent following the £305million takeover of the club.
Newcastle became the richest club in the world after Amanda Staveley, Mehrdad Ghodoussi and the Saudi Public Investment Fund bought out Mike Ashley.
Now, the Magpies are looking to strengthen their squad and have identified Werner as a potential target for the January transfer window, Bild said.

Chelsea signed the 25-year-old in June 2020 for £48 million. However, he failed to replicate the same form he demonstrated in Leipzig.
During his first campaign with the club, Werner scored just six times. Fans were disappointed with the German striker.
As a result, Chelsea made the decision to bring in Romelu Lukaku this summer for a club record £97.5 million. Such a move dropped Werner further down the pecking order.

Newcastle think they can lure Werner with the prospect of him becoming their man-man
Newcastle hope to take advantage of the situation and according to Bild they believe they can lure Werner to the club with the prospect of him becoming their man-man.
Werner – who was an unused substitute during Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat to Juventus in the Champions League – is reportedly open to a switch if he’s still overlooked at Stamford Bridge.
“I think a lot of people’s expectations for me, outside the club but also inside the club, were very high because of my goal record,” he said.
“I also assisted a lot of goals in my old club last year, but I think the main reason they brought me here is to score.
“But maybe 12 goals and six goals in the Premier League at the end, that’s not good enough.”
