Timo Werner prefers Liverpool move as Chelsea and Manchester United fight for his signature
Timo Werner is a man in demand but Liverpool is his preferred destination if he is to leave RB Leipzig this month or in the summer.
The 23-year-old has been prolific since joining Leipzig from Stuttgart in 2016, scoring 70 goals in just 11 Bundesliga games.
The Germany international has netted 20 times n 18 league matches so far this season and talks of a move to a bigger club are growing louder and louder.
Werner had the chance to make a move last summer but instead chose to sign a new contract at Leipzig that runs until 2023.
However, that deal includes a release clause of 60m (£51m) and Bild report that this will decrease year on year until the end of the contract.
Even at its highest level, the release clause is unlikely to put off Premier League clubs who want the prolific forward given his goal-scoring record over the last four seasons.
Werner has previously admitted that he is interested in a switch to the Premier League, saying: There is a certain flair to watching the English league and playing there.’
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is a big fan of the Leipzig star, but may have to convince him that he will get a regular place in the starting XI, given that the current front three of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino are so integral to the side.
Leipzig boss Julien Nagelsmann has previously said he would not stand in the way of his main man if a big move was afoot.
‘Ive already advised many players to take off their wedding ring with their current club to move somewhere else,’ Nagelsmann told Sport Bild in November.
‘Id do the same with Timo Werner if he were developing faster than the team at RB Leipzig.’
