Timo Werner has been linked with a move away from RB Leipzig for some months now, but will it actually happen?
Werner is 24 years old and has represented Germany at international level 29 times and has scored 11 goals. He started his career at VfB Stuttgart and scored 13 goals in 95 appearances before joining RB Leipzig on a four-year-deal in June 2016.
He has been a revelation at RB Leipzig, scoring 71 goals in 118 games for the club. That kind of form has attracted a lot of interest from clubs in England, Spain and France.
The question is, can Werner be a success outside of Germany? We take a look at the clubs looking to sign him before September 1, 2020.
Timo Werner’s Next Club: Liverpool @ 4/9 Paddy Power
Liverpool have been linked with Werner for quite a while now, and if the German international is to leave RB Leipzig, then Anfield looks like his next destination. Liverpool have three quality frontmen in Mo Salah, Firmino and Sade Mane, but it looks like at least one of them could be heading out of Merseyside at the end of the current campaign. If they do lose one of them, then why not take a punt on Werner. He can score goals and he is young and confident enough to not let the pressure of a big money move unsettle him.
Timo Werner’s Next Club: Manchester United @ 6/1 Paddy Power
Manchester United would love nothing better than to prevent Liverpool from signing their number one target. We don’t know how long Marcus Rashford will be on the side-lines, or whether or not Odion Ighalo will remain at Old Trafford next season. United need a striker who can score 25-30 goals a season if they are ever going to be Premier League title contenders again. They should pull out all the stops to get the signature of Werner.
Timo Werner’s Next Club: Barcelona @ 6/1 Paddy Power
Barcelona will always be linked with top quality strikers. They have relied on the magic of Lionel Messi for so long, maybe it’s time to look towards the future and get a youngster in capable of banging in the goals. Luis Suarez is still the lead striker, but his fitness concerns are a worry and maybe Barca need some fresh young blood if they are to be labelled as the best team in Europe once again.
Timo Werner’s Next Club: Bayern Munich @ 17/2 Paddy Power
Paris Saint Germain love splashing the cash to make a statement. They will probably only make a move for Werner if Kylian Mbappe or Neymar leaves the club. They do not need three world class strikers. Keep an eye on the outgoings at Paris before thinking that Werner will be a PSG player by the end of August.
