Timo Werner wanted to leave RB Leipzig in the last summer transfer window. However, the key lies in the price that the Bundesliga representative requested for the German striker. The Red Bull Arena team spent 20 million euros to bring him back from Chelsea in 2022.
The contract between Timo Werner and RB Leipzig is valid until 2026. The best solution in this case is to let the 27-year-old striker leave on loan. However, not many teams are interested in a striker who has only scored one goal since the beginning of this season.
In the 4-4-2 formation that coach Thomas Letsch often uses, the 55-year-old strategist prefers the duo of Benjamin Sesko and Lois Openda. Therefore, Timo Werner almost only plays from the bench. This greatly affects the German striker’s confidence and feeling on the ball. RB Leipzig will not stop him if he wants to leave.
With EURO 2024 approaching, Timo Werner is likely to leave RB Leipzig in the upcoming winter transfer window. He needs to play more if he wants to be called up to the national team by coach Julian Nagelsmann.
