After Liverpool, Inter Milan are also interested in acquiring the 24-year-old striker from Leipzig, Timo Werner. The German player may take the place of Lautaro Martinez.
Leipzig striker Timo Werner is ready to continue his career at Inter Milan. Interestingly, the 24-year-old had previously ruled out a move to the Italian Serie A club. But it seems that he has changed his mind.
During the epidemic situation, Liverpool, who were considered the favorites to fight for Timo, took a break from the negotiations. According to The Guardian, the Merseysiders have informed the 24-year-old forward that they should consider whether it is worthwhile to make an official offer to the player.
Liverpool first want to know the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on the nearest transfer window. The crisis caused by the pandemic may prevent grandees from making big deals and cause severe financial losses.
As a result, Werner agreed to discuss the option of continuing his career in Italy.
Timo Werner will replace Lautaro Martinez
Italian media report that the representatives of “Nerazzurri” are in constant contact with the player’s entourage.
Werner’s transfer to Inter will become possible if the Milan side let the Argentine forward Lautaro Martinez go. As you know, the Catalan Barcelona are keen to sign him.
It is known that Bayern Munich, London’s Chelsea and Manchester United are also interested in the striker of the German team.
As you may know, Timo Werner has a contract with Leipzig until June 30, 2023, and the transfer price of the striker is 64 million euros. This season, the player has scored 27 goals and passed 12 assists in 37 matches in all competitions with the Leipzig shirt.
