Liverpool have no intention of signing Timo Werner from RB Leipzig this month, according to Sky Sports.
The Reds’ forward line is well stocked at the moment with Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Divock Origi, Xherdan Shaqiri and the newly signed Takumi Minamino all at the disposal of manager Jurgen Klopp, and it stands to reason that they don’t need to spend €60 million on Werner despite the Germany international’s red-hot form this term – 25 goals in 26 appearances in all competitions so far.
Reports in Germany suggest that the 23-year-old would be keen on a move to Anfield should he choose the Premier League as his next challenge. Werner signed a new contract in August last year binding him to Leipzig until 2023, but it apparently contains a €60 million release clause which should decrease with each passing transfer window. The reports also question the moment of Werner’s decision to leave his current club, and claim that it hasn’t come yet.
