Liverpool are on transfer alert after Timo Werner made a decision about his future at RB Leipzig.

The highly-rated striker has rejected a contract offer from the Bundesliga club as he looks to make a move elsewhere.

Jurgen Klopp is a known fan and is expected to bolster his attacking resources this summer with the anticipated departure of Daniel Sturridge and continued doubt over the future of Divock Origi .

“It’s well known that we want to extend with him, but he’s signalled to us that he does not want to sign a new contract,” Leipzig chief executive Oliver Mintzlaff told  Sky Sports .

“We need to see what’s right for us and for Timo.”

Werner, 23, is considered to be one of the biggest talents in German football and has scored 14 goals so far this season.

The Reds will certainly be interested but will face tough competition from other European heavyweights if they wish to sign the German international as it is being reported that Bayern Munich are circling.

Werner’s deal expires in 2020.
