In a recent interview with Kicker, RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner spoke about his emergence in the ongoing season and the possibility of potentially leaving the club in the future.
Regardless of the fact that the 23-year-old forward extended his contract at the beginning of the 2019/20 campaign, Werner still opens the door for a possible switch in the not so distant future.
When talking to Kicker, he addressed the rumours that have been linking him with multiple European giants and some of the biggest teams in the world.
So far this season, he’s already netted 25 goals in 28 games across all competitions in 2019/20 and is not showing any signs of stopping any time soon.
Here’s what he said about potentially leaving to the Premier League or to Spain, as quoted by Kicker:
“In any case, I can basically imagine playing abroad at some point , but I have no specific goal as to where I’m going. I am open to everything. The last time I was on vacation in America, English football was on all the time. That is an exclamation mark for the Premier League. But there are also very well-known and big teams in Spain where it would certainly be fun to play.”
Even though Werner never mentions any specific clubs, there was some heavy interest both from England and from Spain in the January transfer window.
Needless to say, with the season he’s having so far, it doesn’t really come as a surprise to see him in such high demand and the Catalans would indeed find a worthy heir in the 23-year-old striker.
But this can’t really bode well for Leipzig themselves as it might become increasingly difficult to fend off all those big European teams who might come prowling once again, especially after an admission like the one above from the player himself.
