The Manchester City fans have been in fine spirits in the Transfer Tavern of late due to their side’s progress in all-four competitions this season.
Manchester City further legitimised their ambitions of claiming an unprecedented quadruple by recording an emphatic 4-0 victory over FC Basel at St Jakob Park on Tuesday evening. The level and consistency of performance they are demonstrating this season is sending a rather ominous message to the top sides across Europe who are hoping to challenge them for the Champions League this season.
One of the key components of City’s season so far has been their ability to tear their opponents apart at will and score a huge variety of goals in the process. Unsurprisingly, Sergio Aguero is the club’s top goal-scorer with a whopping 29 goals from his 33 appearances this season, but that has not stopped the supporters from expressing an interest in another of Europe’s most prolific attacking talents, namely Timo Werner (valued at £54 million by Transfermarkt).
RB Leipzig’s talisman and German international has made a name for himself in the past two years with his frightening performances for the Bundesliga outfit. So far this season, the 21-year-old has scored 10 goals and provided 4 assists from 20 appearances in the German top-flight, and his form seems to have impressed the Citizens faithful.
According to City Watch on Twitter, Werner has been quoted stating that he would be lying to say the prospect of a move to City would not appeal to him.

In response to the tweet, the City fans were quick to call upon Leroy Sane to have a word with his fellow German, and claim that he could be a perfect replacement for Sergio Aguero in the years to come.
Here’s what the City fans have had to say about Timo Werner in response to his comments…
Agent Leroy do your thing bro!
