Timo Werner has openly discussed a potential move to Liverpool, Manchester City or Manchester United amid reported interest in the forward from the Premier League.
The Germany international is attracting interest from across the continent following a prolific season for RB Leipzig, the 24-year-old having scored 27 goals in all competitions to fire the Bundesliga side’s title challenge and seal progression to the Champions League knock-out stages for the first time.
Liverpool have been strongly linked with a move for the forward as they seek attacking reinforcements, with Werner having spoken glowingly of Jurgen Klopp’s side, labelling the European champions as ‘the best team in the world’.
The Leipzig star has now been discussing other potential destinations, seeming to suggest Manchester United as an interesting option, while also refusing to rule out the possibility of remaining at the Red Bull Arena beyond the end of the season.

“At this time in professional soccer there are two different variations. The first is to be part of a team like Liverpool or Manchester City. They have a good working team. The teams have also great coaches,” Werner told Sky Sports.
“But this is the question: do you want to go to that kind of team, because the situation is already that hard for each member and you want to be a part of it? That’s one point you have to look at.
“The other side are teams which need some big changes, because they just won a few big titles, but they are not able to compete on the highest level anymore. For me Manchester United is one of these teams.
“So at this point of my career I’m asking myself: do I want to be part of a new team, to build up something new, or do I want to stay at my team and make something great?”
