Timo Werner reportedly has a £52m release clause in his contract which runs out in three years (2023).
Werner has been constantly linked with Premier League giants Liverpool following brilliant displays for the Bundesliga club.
Timo Werner Transfer Continues To Be A Hot Topic.
RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner wants to sign for Premier League leaders Liverpool, according to reports. The Leipzig hitman, who has been in fine form this season, scoring a total of 21 goals in 25 league appearances, has revealed he will move to Anfield if the Reds are unhesitant to pay his £52m release clause before it expires. As Sky Sports stated, any club willing to sign the forward for that price will have to secure a deal before June 15.
The release clause was inserted when Werner extended his contract last summer until 2023.
It is believed that Liverpool are not willing to make a move for the German before that date, but it remains to be seen amid the COVID-19 crisis. The 24-year-old has often said good things about Jurgen Klopp's side as he did in early March following the Champions League tie against Jose Mourinho's Lilywhites in north London, labelling Liverpool 'the best team in the world' adding that it makes him 'very proud' to be linked with the Merseyside club.
He also admitted he would still have to improve various aspects of his game to reach the level of the Liverpool front three Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, and Sadio Mane, who have produced devastating displays over the years. Last summer Werner was close to securing a move to Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich for a reported deal of €30m, but nothing materialized and he eventually stayed at the Red Bull Arena, however, rumours say that Bayern are still interested in bringing the Germany international to the Allianz Arena stadium.
