Liverpool have pulled out of the race to sign RB Leipzig’s German international striker Timo Werner, according to a report published in the online version of the British tabloid The Mirror.

This follows earlier reports today in German press which stated that Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig refuse to negotiate on the price tag of their prized asset. Werner has a €50 million release fee clause which will rise to €60 million if Leipzig become Bundesliga champions this season.

However, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been very clear that the reigning Champions League champions will not be spending that kind of cash, given the economic crisis following the Covid-19 pandemic, and wont pay more than £30 million, the report continues.

Inter have been linked with the player for quite some time in the Italian media who claim that the Nerazzurri see Werner as the ideal replacement for Barcelona target Lautaro Martinez, should he leave the club.
