RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann admits there is nothing more he can do to try and convince Timo Werner to stay, with Chelsea keen.
We are reportedly seeking to improve their squads when the transfer window opens up in just a few weeks time and have been linked with a £68 million move to try and sign Werner
German striker Werner, who is rated as one of the hottest prospects in Europe, has recently indicated his desire to leave the Bundesliga, opening the door for us to make a possible move
Now amid the transfer speculation, boss Nagelsmann has come out and revealed that there is nothing else he can do to convince the 29-goal hitman to stay during the summer transfer window.
Nagelsmann said on the TalkSport website: “There is nothing we can do about it. He knows what he has in Leipzig and also what he has with me.
“I show him that — he gets many chances to develop himself.
“I don’t know if it will help him that much if I tell him every day.
“A player has to feel that he can get better. If he doesn’t feel that, it wouldn’t do any good if I kept on telling him to stay here.
Werner is a brilliant little striker that has a big future in the game and it will be very interesting to see just where he ends up, as we would love to have him in the squad.
Lets just hope that Lampard gets the financial backing to sign the type of players it will take to get us back challenging for all the major titles.
But in regards to Werner, i would be very unhappy if he did decide to join another Premier League club and not come here, very unhappy!
