Timo Werner may be on his way to either Liverpool, Bayern Munich or Real Madrid this summer
Liverpool and Bayern are currently favourites to land his signature in the summer but Zinedine Zidane is also considering bringing in Werner as he looks to rebuild Madrid’s squad.
Leipzig are keen to keep hold of the highly-rated striker but may be forced to cash in on him with Werner’s heart set on a move away in the near future.

Speaking with Sky Germany at half-time during Leipzig’s clash with Wolfsburg, CEO Mintzlaff said: ‘We want to extend it with him, but he has signalled to us that he would rather not extend.’
