RB Leipzig are to offer star man Timo Werner a mega new contract in order to keep him at the club, according to German outlet Bild.  

The 22-year-old has reportedly caught the eye of Liverpool with his prolific performances for the Bundesliga club.

It’s claimed that the Reds have sent scouts to watch the Germany international in action this term and have been impressed with what they’ve seen.

Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain are also credited with an interest in the man who’s scored 16 times for club and country this season.

Werner has scored nine times in 23 matches for Germany.

With their top striker in the last 18 months of his contract, RB Leipzig are prepared to double his salary to £100,000-per-week in order to try and keep him at the club.

However, even a new bumper contract, which is thought to include a £60million release clause, may not be enough for them to keep the former Stuttgart forward.

Since arriving at the Red Bull Arena in 2016, Werner has netted 56 times in 99 matches for the club.
