Julian Nagelsmann: 'Nothing RB Leipzig can do to keep Timo Werner'

Nagelsmann: 'Nothing we can do to keep Werner'

Julian Nagelsmann concedes that there is nothing more he can do to persuade Timo Werner to stay at RB Leipzig this summer.

RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann has admitted that "there is nothing [they] can do" to keep in-demand striker Timo Werner at the club.

Werner has been linked with Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United after scoring and assisting a further 32 goals in 28 Bundesliga appearances this term.

The Germany international has a release clause in the region of £50m in his contract, which has another three years to run.

No concrete offers have been made for Werner yet, but Nagelsmann concedes that the 24-year-old may move on to further his career.

"There is nothing we can do about it," he told reporters. "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.

"In the end, it is his life, his career, he can decide that. I can't think of anything new to say to Timo."

Nagelsmann was speaking after Leipzig's 4-2 win over FC Koln on Monday, with Werner scoring the third of his side's goals.
