Timo Werner is a transfer target for Inter Milan, with the German on a three-man shortlist, along with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Anthony Martial.
Tuttosport report that Werner is being lined up as a potential replacement for Lautaro Martinez, should he move on this summer.

I would be surprised if Werner opted to join Inter over Liverpool, especially given his recent hints about his desire to play for the Reds.
While the Serie A giants are having a good season under Antonio Conte, Italian football doesn’t have the same level of worldwide exposure as the Premier League, with not as many world-class players plying their trade there.
Moving to Inter would arguably be a step backwards for Werner, or at least sideways, whereas heading to Liverpool would mean representing the best club side in the world.
As he approaches 24, Werner is at a point in his career where he is ready to excel for a truly elite club, which Inter no longer are.
