Bayern Munich top management must be already thinking about the next target because despite scoring 10 goals and 5 assists so far this season, it is clear Robert Lewandowski the goal machine is finally slowing down. The Bavarians are six points behind leaders Borussia Dortmund, lack of enough goals in the team must be one of the reasons why they are trailing the Black & Yellow wall.
4. Timo Werner- 11 Goals (2 Assists)
💬 Ralf #Rangnick: "We're still unbeaten against @BlackYellow at home. We need to remain compact and put them under pressure to force mistakes. We need to anticipate their attacks well, as they are very versatile."

RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner is only 22 years but you would think he is much older than that because he has been shining for over three years now. The German forward is ripe for a move to a bigger club. This season, he has netted 11 goals and assisted 2 more in 17 League matches.
3. Marco Reus- 11 Goals (5 Assists)
