Timo Werner RB Leipzig Liverpool

Liverpool have been warned by Steve Nicol that Timo Werner could decide to move elsewhere despite hinting that a move to Anfield would suit him.

The Germany international has scored 27 goals in 36 matches in all competitions this season with his goals helping RB Leipzig challenge for the Bundesliga title.

His impressive performances have seen Werner heavily linked with moves to Liverpool and Manchester United among others.

There has been recent speculation that Liverpool forward Sadio Mane could leave for Real Madrid this summer and such a blow would be lessened by having Werner lined up as a replacement.

Werner has been flirting with the idea of a move to Liverpool over the past month but Nicol has a warning for his former club.

On the possibility of selling Mane, Nicol told ESPN: “That’s only any good if you bring in Timo Werner.

“Unfortunately there aren’t many [players like Werner] around.

“What if Werner wants to go elsewhere?

“The way it’s being talked about is if it’s done. ‘Timo Werner says he wants to go, so it’s done’.

“Guess what, there was a guy called Kylian Mbappe who told everyone he wanted to go to Real Madrid, he ended up at PSG.”
