Bayern Munich have made an offer to sign Claudio Pizarro after the striker announced he is to leave Werder Bremen, according to Bild.

The 33-year-old was given a deadline of March 31 to commit his future to Thomas Schaaf's side with his contract winding down, but he has reportedly chosen to seek a new challenge, leaving the Bavarians free to send a proposal to the player.

A two-year deal is believed to have been offered to Pizarro which, if accepted, would see him begin a second spell at Bayern following a six-year stint between 2001 and 2007.

Jupp Heynckes has been eyeing up striking reinforcements for quite some time, as Ivica Olic is leaving at the end of the season while Nils Petersen, who has struggled for game time since joining from Cottbus last summer, has yet to truly convince his coach.

Pizarro scored 100 goals in 251 appearances in all competitions for Bayern during his stint with the Bavarians before he joined Chelsea in 2007 and eventually Bremen a year later.
