Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen on Timo Werner.
According to Bild, RB Leipzig have offered striker Timo Werner a bumper new contract worth £100,000-a-week – but he isn’t sure about signing the deal.
Werner, 22, has starred for Leipzig since his 2016 move from Stuttgart, hitting 42 goals in his first two seasons with the club.
He did struggle for Germany at the World Cup in Russia, but has hit back with Leipzig, smashing 11 goals in 17 Bundesliga appearances this term.
Now, Leipzig are unsurprisingly keen to keep Werner at the club, and have offered him a new contract worth €6million a year, which is around £100,000-week.
However, Werner is claimed to be unsure about signing the deal, and that may be of interest to both Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
Last week, Bild claimed that both Liverpool and Spurs are interested in signing Werner, with the Reds seeking competition for Roberto Firmino, and Spurs similarly for Harry Kane.
The reports about Werner being unsure may be more geared towards the specific club he pens a deal with, but Spurs may have a problem exceeding those £100,000-a-week wages.
Daniel Levy doesn’t sanction huge deals easily, and the money may be better spent on keeping Christian Eriksen rather than attempting to better Leipzig’s offer to Werner.
The figures shouldn’t a problem to Liverpool though, and if they can add Werner to an already vaunted front line, Jurgen Klopp’s men would have an attack to cause anybody nightmares.
