Top English Premier League clubs have shown interest in signing German professional footballer who plays as a forward for RB Leipzig, Timo Werner.
A report by the Mirror earlier claimed that Timo Werner’s agents have opened up with Manchester United and Chelsea on Werner’s interest to move to Liverpool FC, urging the two clubs that have pressed for a deal with the striker to look elsewhere.
However, on Thursday evening, a tweet from Liverpool FC News noted that it could not agree further to bring Timo Werner to Anfield, noting that the player has also reached a dead end with deals as he agrees to move to Chelsea FC.

The blues, on the other hand, have been keen to welcome the striker to Stanford Bridge over time.
Werner is one player any club will be glad to have in its squad. The forward has been doing tremendously great even in the Bundesliga games.
Also confirming Werner’s signing deal, Sports pundit, Dean Jones shared on his Twitter account that the German player would have preferred a Liverpool move but will not be able to wait for the time-space, hence he opted for the Chelsea move.
