Liverpool pull out of Timo Werner talks - CLAIMS

Edimilson Fernandes and Timo Werner

Werner has scored 30 goals in 39 competitive games for RB Leipzig this season, along with an impressive 12 assists.

It emerged recently that Werner had held talks with Liverpool, who were said to be favourites, but it was revealed earlier this week that Jurgen Klopp's side are unwilling to meet his £50 million release clause. Club chief Oliver Mintzlaff is already on record as telling SportBild "He won't get cheaper", and it's not thought the situation has changed despite the Covid-19 crisis. "We will not sell a player below value if he is under contract for over a year", said Mintzllaff.

"Generally, we always have to ask ourselves the question, 'Can I replace a player with equal value if I sell him for less than a previously fixed price?"

"But, I only think about those things once I have the facts on the table".

Liverpool and Leipzig are obviously waiting for the 2019-20 season to officially end which is why some people think, the other interested clubs like Chelsea for instance, still have a chance to land the 24-year-old.


'Timo Werner is being wooed by Liverpool FC.

'He is in a good mood, feels good and trains well.

'I do not have the impression that he is carrying a large cross with him. It was no different for me than when in Hoffenheim, it was about whether I go away.

Former Liverpool forward John Aldridge has backed Werner to be a success at Anfield should he make the switch to the Premier League.

While the Liverpool fans will be more than happy to see Werner arrive at the club in the summer but the same can not be said about Roberto Firmino who will either have to prove his worth to Jurgen Klopp or find a new club next season.
