RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner is reportedly considering a move to Manchester United this month in a bid to showcase his skills in the Premier League.
The Daily Mirror suggests that RB Leipzig is willing to allow the German international to go out on loan, provided he secures regular playing time at the destination club.
Manchester United, keen to bolster their attacking options after scoring only 22 league goals in 20 games this season, is exploring various attacking targets. Werner, previously on United’s radar before joining Chelsea in 2020, has emerged as one of the potential options.
The Red Devils have initiated contact to assess the potential cost of acquiring Werner on loan, a move that aligns with their Financial Fair Play (FFP) compliance.
Werner spent two years at Chelsea, contributing 23 goals in 89 appearances and winning the UEFA Champions League in his debut season before returning to RB Leipzig. Since his return, he has scored 18 goals in 54 games.
His prior stint at Leipzig saw him bagging 95 goals in 159 games, leading to a £47 million move to Chelsea.
With Rasmus Hojlund struggling to make an impact in the Premier League and Marcus Rashford experiencing a dip in form, Manchester United sees Werner as a potential solution.
Despite not generating significant excitement among fans, Werner’s eagerness to prove himself could provide the motivation needed to make an impact at Old Trafford.
