Werner could leave despite Liverpool target penning new RB Leipzig deal.

  • The Germany international signed a new deal at the Bundesliga club at the weekend, but hasn’t ruled anything out.

  • Werner scored in Leipzig's 2-1 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday.

Timo Werner hasn’t ruled out a move abroad in the future, despite signing a new deal at RB Leipzig over the weekend.


Werner has been constantly linked with the Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, but Liverpool will be keen to land the 23-year-old if he decides to leave Germany, according to widespread reports.

When he was asked about a possible move in the summer by Sport Buzzer, the striker - who has scored 10 goals in 25 appearances for Germany replied: "I don't exclude anything. I am and remain a player of RB Leipzig.”

Werner hinted that Julian Nagelsmann joining the club’s coaching staff this summer was key in his decision to put pen to paper hours before scoring in Leipzig's 2-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday.

“Of course, that also played a role in my thinking," he added. “We are great in every way, we play Champions League, we have a lot going for us.”

He also revealed his desire to ‘improve’ like Robert Lewandowski - ‘who always stayed hungry’.

“I want and have to improve," he said. “At the age of 22, 23 he [Lewandowski] was not as far as he is now. Robert is a fantastic player. And he always stayed hungry.

"If he scores three goals after 85 minutes he doesn't then stop to receive the adulation. He goes on and wants to score a fourth.

“This type of attitude is one-of-a-kind and it's what I want to be like."
