Good news for Liverpool as 45-goal hero could be up for sale in January


RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner could be up for grab in the ongoing transfer window, that’s according to reports breaking out from Germany this morning.

The young German international still has a contract that runs till 2020 but he’s uncertain about his future with the Bundesliga outfit.

While speaking to Germany’s media outlet kicker, RB Leipzig’s owner Oliver Mintzlaff revealed that the player has an active contract with the team and can’t stand losing him to any club this month.

However, he confirmed that the board members won’t wait until the last year of the player’s contract before they either renew his deal or they sanction his move to any interested club.

Werner is a great and versatile player who will certainly be an upgrade to Dominic Solanke who was released to Bournemouth for £17m yesterday.

Werner is a proven goalscorer and a versatile player who can play any position at the final third of the pitch.

His goalscoring prowess is glaring for all to see. In 80 matches he’s played for the Bundesliga side, Werner has found the back of the net on 45 occasions.

His impressive stats for RB Leipzig attracted Jurgen Klopp’s attention in previous transfer markets but the former Borussia Dortmund boss couldn’t complete his compatriot’s signature.

Apart from the Merseyside club, some top clubs in Europe and beyond have been linked with the 22-year-old forward. Bayern Munich are equally in the race for his signature and the Bavarians — just as Liverpool — will be eager to re-launch a mouthwatering offer for his signature later in the month.
