Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United have handed huge boost in bid to land RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner after his manager Julian Nagelsmann admitted there was nothing more he could do to try and convince him to stay.
The 24-year-old has been heavily linked with Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Bayern Munich amid reports he has a £53million release clause in his contract.
Werner, enjoyed a superb campaign with Leipzig this term, having netted 31 goals and registered 12 assists across all competitions and his departure would be a huge blow to the club.
Werner scored his 31st goal of the season in a 4-2 victory over Cologne on Monday night and Nagelsmann seemed resigned to losing his star man following the game.
He said: ‘There is nothing we can do about it. He knows what he has in Leipzig and also what he has with me.
‘I show him that — he gets many chances to develop himself. I don’t know if it will help him that much if I tell him every day.
‘A player has to feel that he can get better. If he doesn’t feel that, it wouldn’t do any good if I kept on telling him to stay here.
‘In the end, it is his life, his career, he can decide that. I can’t think of anything new to say to Timo.’
