Nils Petersen is heading for the Bayern Munich exit on a temporary basis as the Champions League finalist is ready to farm the attacker out on loan to Werder Bremen, Goal.com can reveal.
The Werderaner are eager to add some fresh blood to their attack in the summer transfer window due to the imminent departure of Markus Rosenberg and the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the future of Claudio Pizarro, and they see the 23-year-old Petersen as the ideal replacement.
Bayern is reluctant to sell the attacker after only one season at the Allianz Arena, but is open to a loan move in order to let him gain valuable first-team experience in the Bundesliga.
Petersen joined Bayern Munich from Energie Cottbus in the summer of 2011, but has so far failed to secure a regular spot in the Bavarians' first team and made just nine league appearances this term.
The former Germany Under-21 international is unlikely to attain more playing time next season as Bayern is looking to sign a new attacker this summer, and both parties are therefore open to a loan move.
Petersen has a contract with Bayern until the summer of 2014.
