Timo Werner’s sensational form in front of the goal has created uproar in the European circuit. The 21-year-old has transformed into one of the most deadly goal poachers of recent times and clubs have been vying for his signature.
Manchester City have also been linked with the player as Pep Guardiola wanted to bring the player to bolster his attacking ranks and Werner’s recent comments will only encourage him to renew his interest in the player. Werner expressed his interest to have a shot in the Premier League and the Sky Blues have to take this chance to seal his signature. Signed from Stuttgart in 2016 the Forward went on to score 21 goals for RB Leipzig last campaign to send his team to the Europe for the first team.
Signed from Stuttgart in 2016 the Forward went on to score 21 goals for RB Leipzig last campaign to send his team to the Europe for the first team. The 21-year-old is predominantly a centre-forward but is equally efficient on both the flanks. He also was a part of the Confederations Cup squad and fired his country to the title.
Real Madrid are said to have been tracking the player for a while as they are plotting a move for him as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo. Werner already has lit up this season with his goal scoring skills and has found the net four times in all competitions.
Werner said, “In Spain there are a maximum of three clubs with Barça, Real and Atlético Madrid. In England there is a bit more: Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City.
He is expected to be a big money signing next summer although he has a contract till 2020 with the German club. Guardiola already signed a plethora of young talented attackers and would love to add the player to the squad.
Werner’s technique with the ball and his superb ball control have made him a hot prospect in the transfer market. Keeping in mind the World Cup it is very unlikely for the player to switch his allegiance but if a good offer comes he will certainly have a good look at it.
His current teammate Naby Keita has already agreed on a deal with Liverpool to join them in the next summer and Werner could also follow his suit.
Despite being a part of the side pretty frequently, Sergio Aguero’s future has been up in the air and if the player wants to leave, Werner could be his ideal successor. However, it remains to be seen how thing turns up in the remaining of the season
