Arsenal, Barca & Bayern target Werner ready to leave Leipzig - FCNaija

RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner has named Liverpool and Manchester United as the teams he would like to play for, after revealing he would love to play in the Premier League.

The 22-year-old striker has been a regular scorer for RB Leipzig since making the switch from Stuttgart in 2016, ending last season with 21 goals from 31 Bundesliga appearances and following it up with 10 in 23 so far this term.

Such form is likely to see him attract interest from across Europe in the near future and, while Werner already has a few potential options picked out, his heart lies at Old Trafford.

The 22-year old has however suggested should a bidding war were to happen between both English giants for him, he would pick the Red Devils.

"I would like to play for two or three clubs, and Manchester United are one of those clubs. But probably not in the next few years – later, when my English is a little bit better! I’m very comfortable at RB Leipzig, though.

“Manchester United and Liverpool were the teams I watched quite a lot in England. They were the two that I’m a little bit a fan of, because they have so much history. When Alex Ferguson was the coach, United won everything and were outstanding.

“In Liverpool it’s also their stadium and the atmosphere. But, when I have to decide, I’m more Manchester United than Liverpool.

“I'm now at a point where at some stage in the future I'd like to play in a team that wins titles.”
