Liverpool: Timo Werner, Will Wait Till His RB Leipzig Release Clause Dops Below £52m
RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner is desperate to join Liverpool that if the coronavirus outbreak reduces prospects of an Anfield switch this year, he will wait in Germany and revisit the move next summer.
Manchester United, Chelsea, and Barcelona are also stated to have made requests for him
He is prepared to wait despite Europe’s major clubs’ interest in the RB Leipzig and Germany star.
Werner has scored 28 goals in 40 appearances for club and country so far this season.
Werner has his heart fixed on transit to Liverpool
Reports from The Athletic, suggest that Jurgen Klopp considers Germany international ‘exceptional value for money’ while Liverpool is Werner’s first choice by a distance.
Football clubs across the globe are still studying the true financial impact of the coronavirus outbreak on the game and there is a very real possibility Liverpool will not be active in the next transfer window.
They claim Klopp spoke to Werner earlier this year and that the 24-year-old believes Anfield is the best place for him to continue his career but acknowledges he may have to wait 12 months.
Barcelona, Manchester United and Chelsea are all keen on the man who has scored 28 goals in 40 games for club and country in the 2019-20 season.
He is expected to wait a year to seal his dream Liverpool move rather than join Manchester United or Barcelona
The 28 goals will stay with his current Bundesliga side rather
and not join one of the other teams interested in him.
And Liverpool could also grasp Werner at a cut-price deal if he is so set on a move to Anfield.
His current release condition stands at around £54m but next year he can be bought for just £36m.
Werner is adjusting for a return to action on Saturday as the Bundesliga resumes the 2019-20 campaign behind shut doors.
The 24-year-old has scored 28 goals in 40 matches in the 2019-20 season so far.
His Leipzig side is third in the standings and five points behind leaders Bayern Munich, host Freiburg.
