Tottenham are close to completing a loan move of Timo Werner from German Bundesliga side, RB Leipzig, much to the despair of Manchester United supporters.

The Red Devils desperately need to improve the offense and were offered the chance to sign the German international (Football Insider).

However, they have been slow as Spurs have swiftly moved to beat the Old Trafford outfit and Werner is expected in London to complete his medical today (The Sunday People).

As per The Athletic, the north Londoners have reached an agreement with Leipzig that allows them to make the loan move permanent for a fee of 15-20 million euros at the end of the campaign.

In the summer, Manchester United lured Rasmud Hojlund from Atalanta but the Danish forward has not been able to hit the ground running in the Premier League.

He has only found the net once in 15 league games and the poor form of Antony, Rashford and captain, Fernandes, has not helped as well.

Hence, Ten Hag has to reinforce the offense and Werner was a massive opportunity. The Kaiser was a key member of the Chelsea side that won the UEFA Champions League in 2021.

Overall, the £165,000 a week striker netted 23 goals for the Blues before returning to Germany. This season, the 57-capped international has mainly warmed the bench.

He has only started two games in the Bundesliga for Leipzig and scored as many goals. Spurs are eight points above Man Utd in the PL table and the arrival of Werner will further improve their frontline.
