Did RB Leipzig drive Liverpool out of poker around Timo Werner? According to a media report from England, the Reds have stopped their bid for the German international this summer.
It smells of a turnaround in the Timo Werner potential transfer. At least this was suggested by a report by the English ‘Daily Mirror’. According to the newspaper, FC Liverpool has withdrawn from moves for the 24-year-old scorer from RB Leipzig.
The background is the relentless insistence of the Saxons on Werner’s exit clause . As a reminder: Only yesterday, Managing Director Oliver Mintzlaff told ‘Sport Bild’: “It won’t be cheaper, we don’t want to hand over a player under a specified value if he has a contract for more than a year.”
In Werner’s case, this means the Anfield giants would have to raise a fixed 55 million euros by June 15 to free the player from his working paper dated 2023. The approximately 33 million that Jürgen Klopp had hoped for.
