Liverpool receive transfer promise from Timo Werner which affects Man Utd and Chelsea

Timo Werner has reportedly given Liverpool his word on a potential switch to Anfield. The German was the club’s primary transfer target heading into the summer window before the coronavirus pandemic struck.

Earlier this week there were reports suggesting that Liverpool had ruled themselves out of the running entirely for Werner.

The 24-year-old has been itching to get his move to Liverpool and looked destined to move to Merseyside.

Now there is a chance that opportunity will be wiped from beneath his feet.

Werner has made it clear he wants Liverpool and has already ruled out a move to Bayern Munich.

According to The Guardian, Werner has actually promised Liverpool that he will wait for their final decision before making any call on his future.

If true, it spells bad news for Chelsea and Manchester United who remain interested in Werner.

Both clubs are monitoring the situation with Liverpool and want to sign a striker this summer.

The Premier League rivals took a step back earlier in the year when it soon became apparent that Werner was set on Liverpool.

Given the player’s prolific form in front of goal, it would be daft for them to walk away entirely.

The report also confirms that Liverpool still remain interested in Werner and have definitely not pulled out of a deal.

The Reds have until June 15 to meet his £52million release clause.

The consensus is that Liverpool will not be doing that.

It will mean they have to negotiate with Leipzig, should they decide to try and sign Werner.

Given he has made it clear he wants to join the Reds, Leipzig are unlikely to stand in his way long-term.

His release clause is set to drop to £36m next summer too, giving Leipzig additional food for thought.
