German Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund have entered the race to sign RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner, according to a report on the Mirror.

The striker is also being pursued by Bayern Munich and Premier League side Liverpool.

The German international only has 18 months remaining on his current contract with Leipzig.

The CEO of Leipzig Oliver Mintzlaff has made it clear to Werner that if he does not sign a new deal then he will be sold by the club at the end of the season.

The 22-year-old has previously admitted that he would like to play for Bayern Munich but Dortmund are now hoping to convince him to join them instead.

Dortmund’s faith in young players and the way they develop them could lure Werner there, especially if they go on to win the league title. 

The league leaders are looking to strengthen in attack after confirming the sale of winger Christian Pulisic to Chelsea.
