Timo Werner has apparently shown no intention of leaving RB Leipzig just yet, as Liverpool continue to be linked with a move for the forward.
Werner has been the talk of the town in the last few months in Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp has been heavily linked with making a move for the German.
However, speaking to Sky Germany, Leipzig CEO, Oliver Mintzlaff has said the club are feeling no pressure when it comes to the future of their star man.
“I’m deeply relaxed about Werner,” Mintzlaff said.
“He hasn’t signalled yet that he wants to leave beyond this season, and he doesn’t have to. He has a contract until 2023.”
Werner has been in blistering form for the German outfit this season both domestically and in Europe.
The 24-year-old has fired in 21 goals in the Bundesliga and added a further four in the Champions League. Indeed, he showed his quality to those in England with a fine performance as Leipzig saw off Spurs over two legs.
Liverpool remain keen on Werner. However, it would appear Leipzig are under no stress when it comes to keeping their man.
Contract means nothing if Liverpool really want Timo Werner – TBR View
Contracts mean very little in football nowadays. If Liverpool want to sign Werner, then the fact remains that he will have his price and Leipzig will eventually sell.
The German club are right to be relaxed, though. They are in a no-lose scenario really. If they keep Werner they have a top player and if they sell him, they stand to make millions.
It’s a win-win for Leipzig. Liverpool, on the other hand, will need to show their prowess in the market to ensure they land their top target.
