Liverpool have reportedly made contact with RB Leipzig regarding Timo Werner.

The 23-year-old forward’s contract at Leipzig set to expire in 2020 and he is believed to have his heart set on a switch to Bayern Munich.

However, the German champions are keen to extend Robert Lewandowski’s contract. If successful, Werner would be surplus to requirements so a move to Anfield may be a better option.

Bayern may still be favourites to sign Werner, but don’t rule out Liverpool just yet.
