Timo Werner Transfer From Leipzig Continues To Be A Hot Topic.

RB Leipzig chief executive Oliver Mintzlaff says Timo Werner "won't get any cheaper" amid reports linking the Germany international with a move away from the Bundesliga club.

Werner is a reported target for Liverpool as he continues to impress in the Germany top-flight, scoring a total of 30 goals in 39 matches across all competitions this season.

It is believed the 24-year-old, who is contracted at the Red Bull Arena until 2023, has a release clause of around £49.4million (€55m) that must be triggered by June 15, but the Premier League table-toppers Liverpool are not willing to match that price tag.

"It won't get any cheaper. We will not sell a player below value if he is under contract for more than a year," he told Sport Bild.

"In general, we always have to ask the following question – can we replace a player if we sell him for less than his market value?

"But, I only think about those things once I have the facts on the table."
