Liverpool will no longer negotiate with RB (Leipzig) for Timo Werner and in practice is giving up its big summer goal, claims exclusively “Mirror”. In the last hours, it became clear that the German club will not deduct from the requested amount for the striker, which is set as a buyout clause – 55 million euros. However, this can be seen a lot for Jürgen Klopp against the background of the potential financial instability of the Merseysiders due to the crisis around the coronavirus pandemic. It is estimated that the club’s revenues from Anfield for the next 12 months will be about 110 million euros less than planned. That is why at this stage the future champion of the Premier League will refrain from such a transfer.
There is even information that the 55 million clauses in question is valid until June 15, after which it will increase to 64 million. Inter and Barcelona are among the other clubs that have an interest in Werner.
This season, the 24-year-old striker has 39 games for RB (Leipzig), scoring 30 goals and passing for 12 others.
