Liverpool remain in the hunt to sign RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner and the door is open to do a deal the German club say.

The Reds have one of the most feared attacks in Europe, but that is not stopping rumours suggesting that Jurgen Klopp is looking to add to it, and Werner has long been a target.

The 23-year-old has had another impressive season for Leipzig when firing home 16 goals, and Bayern Munich were thought to be leading the race for his signature.

However, Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain are also said to be in the hunt and RB Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff says the final decision could be made by the player.

‘We haven’t spoken to Timo Werner about Bayern Munich, but what the player wanted to do was important for us as he wanted to see how the season would go,’ Mintzlaff told Sky Sports.

‘Last year we certainly didn’t play football like we did in the season before.

We have submitted an offer and we know that Timo would rather not extend – but that can still change.

‘Maybe he doesn’t even want to go to Munich.

Maybe he wants to go to [Thomas] Tuchel in Paris or, I have no idea, maybe to Jurgen Klopp [at Liverpool] or Lucien Favre [at Dortmund].’
