Liverpool Strongly Linked With £36 Million Deal To Sign Timo Werner

RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner has been strongly linked with a move to Premier League leaders Liverpool this week after current club RB Leipzig have offered him a contract ultimatum.

In fact, Jurgen Klopp's side are reportedly 'poised' to make a move for the talented 22-year-old striker, according to Metro, and with the departure of Dominic Solanke to Bournemouth for £19 million, it would certainly make sense.

Werner has netted 11 goals in the Bundesliga this season, the second-joint top scorer in the league.

He is currently considering whether to sign a new deal with Leipzig, and with his contract nearing the end, many top clubs have been linked with his services.

German publication BILD claim that the player is ready to make the next step in his career.

On top of that, RB Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff has recently hinted that the forward could be sold in the summer if circumstances change.

"Of course we have to know at the latest after the end of the season. A club like us cannot afford to go with Timo Werner in a final contract year." he said via Kicker.

"It's logical that such a player should be courted by clubs that have a very different sporting perspective and different financial possibilities than we have.

"But as long as we develop as a club, and of course the Champions League participation would be very helpful, I believe that Werner is still in good hands with us.

"If Timo does not strive for the highest possible salary, then it would be a good investment in his sporting future."


Liverpool believe they could land the forward for just £36m if he refuses to renew, according to Metro,

Would he be a good signing for Jurgen Klopp's side?
