RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner will turn down the chance to join Liverpool in order to remain in the Bundesliga.

As reported by Four Four Two, Werner told Welt am Sonntag that he wants to stay in Germany with his current club.

After his fine form this season with Leipzig this season, the youngster has been linked with moves to Bayern Munich and Liverpool in the summer.

I want to keep growing together with RB Leipzig and keep developing here.I am still only 21 years old and still have plenty of years ahead of me.

I am very happy at Leipzig. Joining this club has been a stroke of luck. I have found my way again under Ralph Hasenhuttl.

Werner joined the club from Stuttgart and has become a key fixture in Leipzig’s attack since arriving.

The 21-year-old has scored 14 league goals and has managed a further four assists already this season, with Leipzig sitting second in the Bundesliga table.

The controversial outfit had been battling Munich for the title this season before a dip in form see Carlo Ancelotti’s side pull away clear from the second-placed team.

Werner has been capped at each youth level by Germany but is yet to be capped by the senior side, but has recently been called up by Joachim Low.
