RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner is tipped to make a move to the English Premier League in the summer, with Chelsea and Liverpool his most likely destination.

Bundesliga expert Andy Brassell told TalkSPORT that a move to the Premier League is inevitable for the prolific German forward and named Chelsea and Liverpool as his likely destination.

“Werner I think is going to move,” he said.

“Because of his low-ish buy-out clause, certainly for the quality he has got, of about €60m you’d think there is a massive queue for him.

“But he’s very ambitious and for that reason there is a very small window of clubs that have a chance of getting him.

“Bayern are out of the picture; he’s annoyed they didn’t make that move for him before and it doesn’t seem like he’s over that.

“It seems he would like to try his luck abroad and he speaks excellent English already.

“Of course he’s made such a push for Liverpool in the media opportunities he’s had over recent weeks, but I wonder if Chelsea could be in the mix as well. You could see him walking into that team a lot easier.

“The question is with Liverpool, especially with them going out the Champions League, it does tell you that success, however good, it is finite.

“And at some point Liverpool, however brilliant they are, they’re going to have to make changes to that team. You can’t leave a team and just say: ‘It’s perfect, we can’t improve it’. That’s now how football works.

“So the idea of Werner coming in to compete with those players and maybe even replacing one of them eventually is not completely off the table.”

Werner has a low release clause in his contract which make it difficult for RB Leipzig to keep him beyond the summer.
