The report claims that Leipzig sporting director Ralf Rangnick held last-minute discussions to keep hold of the German striker.

However, the 23-year-old is uninterested in staying at Leipzig, and the report adds that Liverpool and Bayern Munich are keen on the forward.

The report claims that Bayern are the favourites to land Werner, however, Jurgen Klopp could make a move for the former Stuttgart striker.

Divock Origi did a decent job out wide, however, Werner is comfortable as a centre-forward or as a winger.

The 23-year-old bagged 16 Bundesliga goals and provided seven assists as Leipzig finished in the Champions League places.

Werner would be a wonderful addition to the team given his potential and age. However, he would have to move to a new country, and acclimatizing isn’t always easy in new surroundings.
