RB Leipzig joke about Timo Werner’s possible future Premier League destination. The German has been prolific for his side in the Bundesliga this season.
There has been growing rumours over Liverpool’s interest in bringing in RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner. German Publication Bild have reported that the 23-year old has a release clause of just €60million (£50m) and have placed Jurgen Klopp’s side as the frontrunners to his signature.
The news has since caught on like wildfire with several publications and fans sharing the news. RB Leipzig joined in on the discussion with a tongue in cheek response on social media and joked that their prized asset was indeed heading to the Premier League but not to Liverpool.

Timo Werner has been on fire this season scoring 20 goals in 21 Bundesliga appearances. He has also scored 3 times in the Champions League while laying 6 assists this season. The German is versatile enough to play anywhere in the front but he is best suited in the middle.
His performance has helped RB Leipzig keep pace with Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga. Only a single point separates the sides after 21 matches. His side have also made it to the knock out stages of the Champions League.
A host of European giants have been keeping tabs on Werner, including Juventus, Inter Milan, Atletico Madrid and Chelsea, but Liverpool are ready to steal a march on them all. Tottenham are also one of many clubs believed to be chasing Werner’s signature with Jose Mourinho thought to be a keen admirer of the 23-year-old.
Interestingly, Werner has previously spoken of his interest in representing a side capable of winning the Champions League while also involving the Premier League in the same conversation.
“What do you say if a club comes knocking, a club which is one of the favourites to win the Champions League and makes an incredible offer?” Werner said in an interview with Kicker.
“Most likely every player would think about it. I am open for everything. I was over in America for a holiday recently and English football was on all of the time.
“That’s an exclamation mark for the Premier League. But there are also big, famous clubs and it would certainly be fun playing there.”
