Liverpool handed clear stance by German club over signing 22-year-old

According to The Mirror, Bundesliga side RB Leipzig have made it clear that Liverpool target Timo Werner will only leave in the summer on the club’s terms. Reports emerged earlier this week that the German had agreed personal terms with rivals Bayern Munich.

Leipzig boss Ralf Ragnick is furious with the 22-year old’s attempt to force a transfer and made it clear that he will be sold if he does not extend his contract in the summer.

An offer of a deal worth £5.2million per year is set to be on the table and Oliver Mintzlaff, the club’s CEO, has given an ultimatum to the German to either leave in the summer or agree to the deal that would extend his current contract that runs out in 2020.

The German international is reportedly on the radar of a number of European giants including Liverpool, Barcelona, PSG and Real Madrid.

Leipzig would prefer to sell their star man to a club that isn’t a direct rival and Liverpool seems an ideal destination.
