RB Leipzig chief executive Oliver Mintzlaff has warned that Timo Werner won’t become any cheaper with Liverpool backing down from a deal to sign the Forward.
The Reds have been long admirers of the German goal-scorer but are unwilling to match the £50million asking price as they value him below £30million due to the current financial limitations caused by the pandemic.
Oliver Mintzlaff has however reiterated that Werner will not be sold on the cheap or for less than the current asking price. Speaking with Sport Bild, he said:
“It won’t get any cheaper. We will not sell a player below value if he is under contract for more than a year,”
“In general, we always have to ask the following question – can we replace a player if we sell him for less than his market value?
“But, I only think about those things once I have the facts on the table.”
Liverpool have now been left with two options; either to buy Werner for the asking price or wait a year when his value drops to £35million but battle the likes of Barcelona and Bayern Munich who are equally watching the German.
