Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has admitted his team are “one or two players short” and might add to the squad in the January transfer window should a good opportunity come knocking, is reportedly interested in longtime Liverpool target and RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, reports Express.
The German international joined Leipzig in June 2016 and has only recently signed a new four-year contract. Despite the fact, however, a move has not been ruled out, especially since the fairly reasonable release clause of €30m. Still, it is not expected Werner will switch clubs before the end of the season.
The 23-year-old has been linked with Bayern Munich and Liverpool in the past, and in the summer Sport Bild reported Werner would only be interested in going to Liverpool, Real Madrid or Barcelona.
United could certainly use an addition such as Werner, which would help him improve the team’s attack. The German, who has scored altogether 68 times for his club during the three and a half seasons, would make a great replacement for United’s Mario Mandzukic, who has long been rumoured to be leaving the club.
