Timo Werner news

Werner won't join Chelsea or United this summer

RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner is prepared to snub interest from the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United as he is determined to join Liverpool.

The German has bagged 27 goals and 12 assists for Leipzig this term and his form has caught the eye of several clubs including Bayern Munich.

Werner has publicly stated that he won't sign for Bayern at the end of the season and Sunday World reports that he has no ambition of joining Chelsea or United either.

The 24-year-old is a huge admirer of Jurgen Klopp's work at Anfield and he was full of praise for the Merseyside outfit during an interview earlier in the year.

Werner won't have the assurance of a starting role with the move to the Reds but he is still prepared to take up the challenge of playing under the German head coach.

It has previously been reported that the marksman could be prepared to remain with Leipzig for another year with the Reds reluctant to make an offer this summer due to the financial impact of the coronavirus outbreak.
