In demand Leipzig striker Timo Werner has indicated that he may be open to a move to the Premier League next summer. The 21 year old was one of the cornerstones of Leipzig’s success last season (they finished second behind Bayern and ahead of more fancied teams like Dortmund and Leverkusen) and played in their first ever Champions League game against Monaco last night. Team-mate Naby Keita has already agreed a move to Liverpool and Werner might choose to follow the former north to England..
Werner said to German paper Bild that it was clear he would like to play for a big club in the future, but also added that Leipzig might become a big one in the future. Here are his full comments (translated) below. Real Madrid have been widely linked with a move, and Los Blancos were one of the clubs mentioned by the young German in his interview.
If you’re looking for an example of Werner’s abilities, look no further than this beautiful recent counter attacking goal against Hamburg- from their own box to the opposition end within ten seconds. (via http://www.thesoccerblog.org/)
