RB Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann has admitted that Timo Werner is “being wooed” by Liverpool.
The Reds have been continually linked with an approach for the Germany international over the past few weeks and months (BT Sport via The Daily Express), and his form shows just why he is so in-demand. The 24-year-old scored a hattrick against Mainz at the weekend to take his tally for the campaign to 30 goals in all competitions, with only Robert Lewandowski scoring more than his 24 Bundesliga goals this term.
Nagelsmann, though, has been talking about the striker, and has questioned whether his mind is on the speculation linking him with an exit. He told SportBild (via The Daily Mail):
“Timo Werner is being wooed by Liverpool FC. When it comes to a change or his contract, he often does not play as consistently well as he does not think about the future. How do you experience this?
“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.
“But he is a young guy who is sure to sit at home with his wife and ponder whether he will stay or change.
This is only going to add even more fuel to the rumours that Werner will soon leave Die Rotenbullen. The forward himself has appeared to do little to quash talk of a transfer with his comments in interviews in the past few months, and the speculation will undoubtedly be playing on his mind.
Do you want Werner at Anfield?
His recent displays, though, do not seem to be showing that. Nagelsmann will be hoping that he continues to perform to this high standard between now and the end of the season, before potentially then securing a move away.
