Timo Werner: Chelsea in talks to sign RB Leipzig striker

The Evening Standard has reported that Liverpool haven't given up hope of signing Timo Werner, but that a move could happen toward the end of the next transfer window.

However it now looks like the 24-year-old will make a move to Chelsea, with Bild claiming that the player is close to agreeing a move worth 'almost €60 million'.

The Reds have tracked the German worldwide for some months with Klopp a big fan of his compatriot, who has 31 goals across all competitions this season.

Chelsea failed with a bid to sign Mertens in the last transfer window and the Belgian is now expected to pen a new contract with Napoli.

"This season has been his best yet, with 31 goals scored in 40 games so far, taking his overall total for RB Leipzig to 92 in 154 appearances".

With the Premier League set to restart on June 17, Chelsea occupy fourth spot but Manchester United - in fine form before the enforced break - are just three points behind.

Chelsea are all but ready to sign German global Timo Werner from RB Leipzig in a £53 million move.

It remains to be seen if the goal machine would be keen to swap RB Leipzig for the London giants.

He also added that Werner would collect more than €10million (£9m) or €50m (£45m) in total.

"The majority of Werner's goals have come from the central striking position this season, but he is tactically flexible - RB Leipzig have used nine different formations in the Bundesliga this season - and he is also comfortable playing in wide positions, particularly when cutting inside from the left".

Speaking earlier this week about the possibility of losing the striker, Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann said, "He knows what he has in Leipzig and also what he has with me".

"He gets many chances to develop himself. I can't think of anything new to say to Timo".
