Several Tottenham Hotspur have been talking about Timo Werner on social media recently.
The discussions began after the RB Leipzig striker netted a brace against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday evening, helping his side to a 3-3 draw.
Werner has been on fire in the 2019/20 campaign and has already managed to bag 23 goals in just 24 appearances in all competitions, as well as providing nine assists (Transfermarkt).
Spurs, of course, have been drawn to face Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League round of 16, so Werner could come up against them in a couple of months time. That is if he doesn’t move on in the January transfer window, which could happen according to journalist Kevin Palmer should they sign Red Bull Salzburg’s Erling Haaland.
The thought of facing Werner is frightening for some Tottenham supporters who feel that he will definitely cause them a problem in the tie given his incredible goal-scoring record for the current campaign.
Other Spurs fans have suggested that the 23-year-old would be a good signing for the club, though others have pointed out that he wouldn’t want to come and sit on the bench as he is unlikely to shift Harry Kane as their first-choice striker.
Here is what some Spurs fans have been saying about Werner on Twitter recently…

Timo is a problem in general. So deadly. So pacey. Top class scorer. Honestly wouldn’t mind to see him in a Spurs shirt on the wing

Werner just scored 2 goals in 6 minutes for Leipzig against Dortmund… He’s going to be a big problem in our UCL tie.

Werner is different class way too good for the bench more of a replacement for Kane not back up.

Should have gone for this kid when we bought the Dutch sensation Vinny Janssen.
