RB Leipzig director Markus Krosche confirms that the club are considering "alternatives" to Timo Werner, who has been linked with Liverpool and Manchester United.

RB Leipzig sporting director Markus Krosche has confirmed that the club are considering "alternatives" to in-demand striker Timo Werner.

Liverpool have been heavily linked with a summer move for the Germany international, who has scored 27 goals and created 12 more in 36 appearances this season.

Manchester United and Manchester City have also been credited with an interest in Werner, and Krosche has now dropped the strongest hint yet that the forward could be on his way out of the club.

"It is quite normal for Timo to become the focus of other clubs. But that doesn't give me sleepless nights," Krosche told Bild.

"We are prepared, we have alternatives in mind."

Werner has scored 88 goals in 150 games for Leipzig since joining the club in 2016.
