Liverpool and Chelsea are going head-to-head in a £60million battle to sign RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.
According to our close sources, Chelsea have already opened negotiations for the German international, who has struck 18 goals in 17 Bundesliga appearances so far this season.
However, Timo Werner prefers to make Liverpool his destination should he choose to leave RB Leipzig this January or even in the summer.
That’s according to German newspaper Bild, with Jurgen Klopp understood to be a long-time admirer of the 23-year-old.
Werner extended his contract until June 2023 and has a £51million release clause that decreases each year.
Express Sport understands Chelsea and Manchester United are also keen on the Germany international, who has bagged an incredible 86 goals in 140 appearances for Leipzig.
