According to reputed journalist Christian Falk, the Reds will have to trigger the German's release clause by the end of April if they are to bring him to Anfield.
Werner was linked with moving to Bayern Munich last summer but ended up signing a contract extension at RB Leipzig till 2023. The release clause in his current contract is reported to be around €55-60 million.
Werner has scored 20 goals in 21 Bundesliga games for Leipzig in the present campaign. Besides Liverpool, his impressive displays have grabbed the attention of Bayern Munich, Inter Milan, Juventus, Atletico Madrid and Chelsea. Although it is believed that the player's heart is set on joining Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool.
The Reds retain a pleasant relation with the German club, having signed Naby Keita from Leipzig in 2017. But it remains to be seen if Liverpool splash the cash to bring Werner to Anfield.
