However, Haller has refound his goalscoring touch under Erik Ten Hag at Ajax after a sticky spell with The Hammers in the Premier League which saw him score just 14 times in 54 appearances.
In contrast he has scored 28 goals from just 27 appearances this season, including 10 in the Champions League group stage which saw him equal Cristiano Ronaldo’s record of most goals in a group stage and breaking Erling Haaland’s record of fastest player to 10 goals in the competition.
While Haller still is not close to Lewandowski’s 37 in 31 games, he is a lot closer than many of Europe’s other top strikers and this is where Bayern’s reported interest factors into them wanting him.
