RB Leipzig open to selling Timo Werner

RB Leipzig are open to selling their forward Timo Werner in January.

It has been reported that several Premier League clubs are interested in signing Werner.

The 27-year-old has made 13 appearances this season with nine of these coming from the substitutes bench. He has started just twice in the Bundesliga so far and has only played 30 minutes in the Champions League with strikers Benjamin Šeško and Loïs Openda being preferred by head coach Marco Rose.

He currently has a contract at Leipzig which expires in 2026 therefore the club are only willing to sell Werner for a suitable fee that is no lower than their valuation of him.

A return to London looks most likely for Werner as Fulham, Crystal Palace and West Ham all look to be interested in the striker. West Ham manager David Moyes would be interested in bringing in a striker after letting Gianluca Scamacca leave in the summer.

Fulham are also looking for a striker to replace Aleksander Mitrovic who scored fifteen goals last season and then left for Al Hilal in the summer whilst Crystal Palace have been lacking a goal scorer for some time now and will continue to monitor Werner’s situation.
