Timo Werner is a player chased by most of the top clubs in English football, including Liverpool and Manchester United, also Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are seen as a potential new clubs as Red Bull Leipzig could wave farewell to one fantastic forward.

His tally for the German national team is impresse, 11 goals in 29 games, and the player that Red Bull Leipzig signed from VfB Stuttgart back in 2016 has developed since his move, making his full international debut after his arrival in Leipzig.

He was a youth talent and early seen as a player that could all the way, and has scored goals in buckets since his debut in the Bundesliga back in the 2013/14 season, being the youngest player ever to represent Stuttgart in the league.

He has so far scored 72 goals in 118 league games at Leipzig and a move looks close and could be perfect for his next step, at the age of 24 he should be mature enough to make the full step, and it looks better to join Manchester United than Liverpool, who looks a bit different in their setup and not really a place in the attack, with Mane, Salah and Firmino all in there and would be stupid to seperate those fantastic players.

There are of course a few other options for Werner, but he needs to play every minute and not be part of a rotation set up, that would kill his talent and just make him sad and unsatisfied.

Arsenal are also looking for a forward, but ideally he would be the perfect fit for Pep Guardiola, with an aging Sergio Aguero maybe not really the future forward for Man City in the next four or five seasons, don’t be surprised if Pep will be on the phone as Werner could be slotted straight in.

A sale of Harry Kane could of course open up space at Tottenham and if Mauricio Pochettino jumps at a possible manager position at Newcastle United then Timo Werner could be in there as the Magpies looks close to a full transformation and moving into a new era and become a title contender again.
