Liverpool to launch urgent €40m bid to avoid premium fee for top target

RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner has been long linked with a move to Premier League side Liverpool.

However, reports claim, that Bundesliga side is preparing to tie down the 22 year old to a new deal with a big release clause.

Werner’s current contract is due to expire in 2020, which means that Leipzig risk losing him for a cut-price fee in the summer, but Bild claim that RB Leipzig have hatched a plan.

They will offer him a new deal which contains a €70m (£61m) release clause, which only the ‘top ten’ teams in European football can activate, the report claims. (via TEAMtalk)
