RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner is a transfer target for Real Madrid, according to a report.

Real Madrid are reportedly interested in signing RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.

The 23-year-old is enjoying an impressive season for his German club, finding the back of the net on 21 occasions in 23 appearances in all competitions.

Werner's goal against Fortuna Dusseldorf on Saturday means that he has now scored in each of his last six league appearances, with his Bundesliga record this term standing at 16 strikes in 15 outings.

Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool have all been credited with an interest in the Germany international ahead of next month's winter transfer window.

However, according to reports in Spain, Madrid are also in the hunt for the forward, who could cost in the region of £67m having only penned a new deal at the Red Bull Arena in August.

Karim Benzema has been in impressive form for Los Blancos this season - netting 15 times in 20 appearances - but Luka Jovic has struggled to contribute since arriving from Eintracht Frankfurt.
