Premier League giant Liverpool are being reported to be very close to agreeing a deal with German giant RB Leipzig over the signing of striker Timo Werner, who has told the club he has no intentions of putting pen to paper on a contract extension.
The German striker, who joined Leipzig in the summer of 2016 from Stuttgart, is set to become a free agent with 14 months left on his contract with the club.
Reports in Germany claims that Liverpool have locked horns with Bayern Munich, who are both the leading suitors, in a race to sign the Germany International which could eventually prompt Leipzig to sell to the club with highest offer.
Transfer expert Ian McGarry, who was reporting on the Transfer Window Podcast, claims that the English club might just be on the edge of agreeing to personal terms.
Speaking, McGarry said: “When a player refuses to sign a new contract it’s usually because he’s got an agreement in place somewhere else, my information is Liverpool are very close to agreeing personal terms with Werner.”
RB Leipzig have already slapped an asking price of £43 million on the Timo Werner, who has bagged 60 goals in 108 appearances for the Bundesliga club since his arrival in 2016.
