Liverpool have been strongly linked with the striker, who is thought to be on Jurgen Klopp’s wishlist.
BILD have already suggested that Werner wants a move to Liverpool, but City’s interest complicates matters.
City, of course, may no longer be able to offer Werner Champions League football for the next two years - but they have traditionally paid higher wages than Liverpool.
Whether that will be enough to turn Werner’s head remains to be seen.
The German international, who has a £50 million release clause in his contract (BILD), has been a prolific scorer in the Bundesliga for RB Leipzig, where he has netted 20 goals in 22 matches.
His route into either Liverpool’s or City’s starting line-ups would not be easy though.
Liverpool have Roberto Firmino leading the line, and he is such a vital cog in their system, due to his link-up play and work-rate.
City, meanwhile, have Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus competing for places up-front, and the pair remain two of the finest strikers in the Premier League.
