Timo Werner: RB Leipzig admit no contact made by Liverpool over £50m switch

Share This Post

RB Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff has denied there has been any contact from Liverpool over a move for Timo Werner, despite reports suggesting the Reds are deep in negotiations over a move for the German striker. Werner reportedly has a release clause in his contract which will allow him to leave Leipzig for £50m this summer.

Liverpool have been continuously linked with a move for Werner, with some reports suggesting they were nearing completion of a deal, with Werner’s release clause due to expire in April.

Werner has been top class all season long in Germany, bagging 25 goals in 31 appearances across all competitions. In the Bundesliga, he has scored 20 goals in 22 matches. He also provides assists for his teammates too having registered six in Bundesliga and 10 in all competitions.

Speaking after the win against Werder Bremen at the weekend, Mintzlaff told TransferMarkt there has been no contact.

“We hear these reports all the time. Someone makes something up, and everyone else copies it. Werner is happy here and wants to play the rest of the season.”

The report also states that Liverpool aren’t the only Premier League team to be looking at trying to bring Timo Werner to England. Chelsea, who have relied heavily on the hit and miss Tammy Abraham this season, are also interested in his signature.

As well as that, wherever there is German footballer playing very well and attracting interest from around the globe, there will always be a link to Bayern Munich. Many have touted Werner as the eventual replacement for Robert Lewandowski, but I can’t see that happening – at least not yet.

Of the three options, the one that seems the most sensible from a Timo Werner perspective is Chelsea – simply because he’s almost guaranteed playing time there. He’ll be their star man, on the team-sheet every single week without fail – whereas at Liverpool, unless one of the front three leave, he won’t have that guarantee.

I’m sure a move to Bayern would tempt him too – what German player wouldn’t want to play for the only team in Germany to have won the league for the last eight years? Stepping into the shoes of Robert Lewandowski is a big ask for anyone though – and a responsibility he might not fancy shouldering.
