However, the Anfield club have asked for more time to assess the situation due to the COVID-19 crisis and the Kaiser could consider offers from other PL clubs as well. (The Guardian).
According to Bild, the 24-year-old striker’s departure from RB Leipzig is looking likely this summer and the race to secure his signature is underway in England.
The renowned German source have mentioned that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has to act swiftly if he wants to lure his countryman because Man United and Chelsea have made contact with the player’s representatives in order to sign him.
Werner was in world class form for Leipzig before the current campaign was halted due to the ongoing pandemic. In all competitions, he scored 27 goals and provided 12 assists in just 36 appearances.
In the Bundesliga, he netted 21 goals, five fewer than leading goalscorer Robert Lewandowski.
As far as his international career is concerned, so far, the German has played 29 times under the management of Joachim Low and scored 11 goals for the four time World Cup winners.
