West Ham United, Crystal Palace and Fulham are all in the picture to sign RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner in the January transfer window as he looks to secure playing time elsewhere.
That’s according to SportBILD, who say the current Leipzig ‘benchwarmer’ wants a move ahead of the Euros next summer.
The newspaper explains that Leipzig are on course for something of a ‘wild winter’ as they look to restructure the squad for the second half of the season.
A ‘change makes sense’ with that in mind and Leipzig are ‘ready to talk’ about a potential deal with anyone who shows an interest.
The striker also believes there is ‘nothing wrong’ with a return to England, despite his somewhat miserable time at Chelsea, and West Ham, Crystal Palace and Fulham are all showing interest.
One potential issue is the striker’s ‘high basic salary’ but even that is unlikely to be as big an issue for mid-table Premier League as it would be for other potential suitors.
All three of West Ham, Crystal Palace and Fulham need a goal scorer to bolster their squads having struggled in that department this season and it seems they’re now keen on Werner, even after his struggles at Stamford Bridge.
