Timo Werner has refused to rule out a move to the Premier League or La Liga.
It looked imminent that the forward would sign with Bayern Munich ahead of the 2019/20 campaign. However, the move never materialised and Werner went on to sign a four-year extension with RB Leipzig.
He was heavily linked to the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool, Real Madrid and Barcelona this past month. But an immediate switch was always going to be difficult, given how successful Leipzig have been this season. They are currently sitting at the top of the Bundesliga albeit with just a point above. Werner is their top scorer with 25 goals in 28 games across all competitons.
“I can imagine playing abroad at some point, but there’s no specific place will go. I’m open to everything,” Werner told Kicker. “When I was on holiday in America, English football was on all the time. But there also very well-known and big teams in Spain where it would for sure be fun to play.
“When you have scored 20 goals this season so far at the age of 23, you obviously attract interest. That’s clear. But at the moment, I’m not thinking about what will happen in the future. We are now facing important matches that will be decisive for the rest of the season. That’s what I want to concentrate on. I’ll think about my future at a later point in time.”
Chelsea failed to strike a deal for either Moussa Dembele or Edinson Cavani in January. Reports claimed that the Blues did not even come forward for negotiations over the latter. This means Frank Lampard will possibly look to splash the cash on a more prolific talent like Werner next summer.
