Nagelsmann concedes Werner transfer

Timo Werner is a wanted man and continues to move closer to a move away from RB Leipzig after manager Julian Nagelsmann said there wasn’t anything more he could say to convince the striker to stay.

According to the Daily Mail, the German international has been linked to Liverpool, Bayern Munich, Manchester United and a host of other clubs. There are reports that the 24-year-old has a €60 million release clause in his contract.

Werner has scored 31 goals for RB Leipzig in all competitions this year and scored his 25th league goal in RB Lepzig’s 4-2 over FC Koln on Monday.

Nagelsmann said after the match that he’s done all he can to convince Werner to stay.

”There is nothing we can do about it,” Nagelsmann said. “He knows what he has in Leipzig and also what he has with me.”

Nagelsmann said that Werner has had a lot of time to develop himself but if he feels he won’t get better it wouldn’t be right to convince him to stay.

“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.”

Werner seems keen to move and the club have conceded they won’t be able to hold onto him should the bigger clubs come calling, but there doesn’t seem to be any end in sight of this ongoing transfer saga just yet.
