RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner is open to a move to Liverpool if it were on offer.
The 23 year old’s form has attracted attention from a number of Premier League clubs, with Chelsea and Manchester United also interested in signing him, but it is the prospect of Liverpool which is the most enticing for the striker who has scored 23 goals in 28 games this season as Leipzig chase their first ever Bundesliga title.
Werner began his career with Stuttgart before moving to Leipzig in June 2016, and has since gone on to net for them 86 times in 142 appearances. Last November, he became the youngest ever player to notch up 200 Bundesliga appearances. He has also won 29 caps for Germany, scoring for the national side 11 times.
For now he insists that he is ignoring the speculation and just wants to concentrate on his football but also admitted that “What do you say if a club comes knocking in the next two weeks, a club which is one of the favourites to win the Champions League and makes an incredible offer? Most likely every player would think about it.’

He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
