Liverpool target refuses new RB Leipzig deal

14th April 2019, 14:37 by Daniel McCarthy

Liverpool are reportedly said to be on alert after RB Leipzig confirmed star striker Timo Werner will leave the club in the summer.

Werner has been a major part of their extraordinary ascent up the German leagues but is now primed for an exit from the club.

He has just one year left on his contract and refused offers to stay at the Red Bull Arena, with the player thought to be keen on a move to a club in the Champions League.

This has put Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp on alert as he wants to bolster his forward options to take the burden away from Roberto Firmino, Mo Salah, and Sadio Mane.

A move would reportedly cost around 60 million euros, with Bayern Munich also interested in signing the striker, who has scored 18 goals in 31 appearances this season.

And, club CEO Oliver Mintzlaff admits he is resigned to losing the 22-year-old in the summer, confirming the striker has turned down the chance of a new deal.

"We want to extend it with him. But he has signalled to us that he would rather not," Mintzlaff told Sky.
