RB Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff has revealed that star player Timo Werner could make a move to Liverpool in the summer. Werner has been linked with a move away from the club in recent seasons and it is believed that the pacy forward would leave in the summer.
German giants Bayern Munich have been linked to the 24-year-old but Mintzlaff in an interview with SKY revealed that the player is not interested in moving to the Allianz Arena. Mintzlaff hinted that Werner is interested in joining one of PSG, Liverpool or Borussia Dortmund.
Maybe [Timo] doesn’t even want to go to Munich. Maybe he would rather join Tuchel in Paris, Klopp at Liverpool or Favre at Dortmund.
We can conclude from his statement that the German international is likely to leave the club this summer.
Liverpool looks like the favourites as PSG are troubled with FFP problems and Dortmund would not be able to afford the huge fee that Leipzig would demand for their talisman.
Werner would be a good addition to Liverpool as he fits perfectly with Klopp’s ideology of quick counterattacking football.
He would provide quality competition for Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohammed Salah in the attacking positions.
There was no mention of a transfer fee in the report but Werner is valued at £58 million according to transfermarkt.
