Liverpool have been put on alert after RB Leipzig’s CEO admitted that Timo Werner is unlikely to sign a new deal.
Oliver Mintzlaff, Leipzig’s CEO, has revealed that Werner does not look like he is going to put pen to paper on a new contract at Leipzig.
Werner’s current deal with the club expires at the end of next season, which means that the German club could be tempted to sell him in the summer to avoid losing him on a free next year.
The Daily Mail claim that Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid have all been put on alert by this claim, as they eye a move for the striker.
Mintzlaff said this about Werner’s contract:
We want to extend it with him, but he has signalled to us that he would rather not extend.
Werner has impressed yet again in the Bundesliga this season for Leipzig, with 14 goals and five assists so far for the German giants.
The 23-year-old has scored 61 goals in 109 games for Leipzig since joining the club in 2016.
