Liverpool will be boosted by the knowledge that Timo Werner will be sold in the summer if he does not agree to renew his contract with RB Leipzig.

The German’s contract expires in 2020 and if he refuses to extend his stay with the Bundesliga outfit, he will be sold.

Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff states that the club cannot allow Werner to go into the final year of his contract without having renewed his deal.

GOAL journalist Ronan Murphy quotes Mintzlaff as saying: “A club like us can not afford to have Timo Werner go into his final contract year.”


The forward will be available for a bargain fee of £36million at the end of the season despite some suggestions that he could be free to leave in the January transfer window this year.

A front four of Timo Werner, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino would be an incredible attacking lineup and would boast a terrifying ability to interchange with their movement and intelligent passing.

Whether or not Bayern Munich will register an interest or if RB Leipzig will let him join their domestic rivals remains to be seen. What is clear, however, is that the German will not join his next club without a host of managers trying to sign him.
