RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool in the summer, as the Anfield club look to supplement their forward line of Mo Salah, Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino.
It is believed that the Teds are prepared to meet his release clause at the end of the season, with the player himself dropping heavy hints are openly expressing his admiration for the Premier League champions in waiting after scoring the winning goal for his club in the first leg of their Champions League tie against Spurs last week.
And now it transpires that he may not cost the Champions League winners as much as first thought. Originally thought to be €58 million (£50 million), it now transpires that Werner’s release clause is only €30 million (£25 million) plus performance related bonuses.
Werner is under contract at Leipzig until 2023.

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.
