Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Haaland is a top target for RB Leipzig and if they sign the Norwegian international that would free Timo Werner up for him to join Liverpool ahead of Manchester United.
In a potential twist, Manchester United can stop Liverpool from signing Timo Werner if they swoop for Erling Haaland who is also a target with recent reports claiming that the Red Bull Salzburg has agreed to join the Red Devils in a £76m deal next month and this means that the aforementioned Werner will most likely stay at RB Leipzig until the summer at least.
