Manchester United are seeking to recruit Timo Werner 27, Leipzig.
“Werner is one of the candidates for Manchester United,” said Florian Flettenberg of Germany’s “Sky Sports” on the 4th. “Manchester United inquired about Werner, and we also got related information last November.”
Ekrem Connor, a transfer market expert, also said, “Manchester United have started negotiations to recruit Leipzig striker Werner. Werner wants to return to the Premier League, and Arsenal and Newcastle United can also offer to recruit him.” 토토사이트
Werner was a top striker in the first season of Leipzig. He scored 21 goals and seven assists in 32 games in the 2016-17 season, 21 goals and 10 assists in 45 games in the 2017-18 season, 19 goals and 10 assists in 37 games in the 2018-19 season, and 34 goals and 13 assists in 45 games in the 2019-20 season.
Werner, who was caught on the radar of the big club, joined the Chelsea team in the summer of 2020, and since then, his dark days have come. Due to frequent offside and big chance misses, he lost countless scoring opportunities, and only scored 23 goals in 89 games during the two seasons. Considering the transfer fee of 47.5 million pounds about 79 billion won, it was clear that the move was a disappointing stat.
Eventually, he packed his bags at Chelsea and returned to Leipzig, the friendly team, in the summer of 2022. The first season of the second term was quite impressive. He revived the game by scoring 16 goals and 6 assists in 40 official matches. In particular, he contributed greatly to his team’s victory with five goals and 1 assist at DFB Pokal.
However, he had a problem from this season. He played 14 games through the winter break, and only played 386 minutes. He had limited chances to play as he became the fourth striker, trailing only Royce Oppenda, Yusuf Poulsen, and Benjamin Sheshko. He was also under attack point with two goals and one assist, and recently was only on the bench.
It has been on the release list again after a season and a half, and multiple Premier League clubs are sending love calls. Manchester United, Arsenal, and Newcastle are being discussed. Among them, Manchester United’s name stands out. Manchester United scored 22 goals in 20 Premier League games due to its disastrous attack this season. Reinforcement of the attack was essential, and Werner was targeted.
Britain’s “Sky Sports” listed Werner, Eric Maxim Chupomoting and Seru Girashi as the sales that Manchester United is aiming for. The possibility of Werner joining cannot be ruled out.
