  Real Madrid has made a return to German forward Timo Werner to solve goal scoring issue at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Reports in El Confidencial says that Real Madrid has stepped up their chase in the RB Leipzig striker as Karim Benzema fails to deliver the goals after his initial show.

The European will make an effort to sign the forward in the January transfer window.

Werner,22, was one of the stars tipped to arrive at the Bernabeu during the last summer transfer but a poor show in the World Cup in Russia made Real Madrid cool off the bid for the Leipzig forward.

The attacker is gaining back his form gradually and he has scored four goals and provided three assist in nine appearances in all competitions.

Real Madrid attackers failed to score in their last four games and also failed to win with the likes of Gareth Bale, Marco Asensio and Karim Benzema filling to find the back of the net.

The German international is considered as a long-term replacement for Benzema.
