Manchester United failed to knock Liverpool at Old Trafford yesterday and are still being in the bottom half of the table, 15 points behind the Premier League leaders.
Ole Gunnar Solskjarer’s side sorted their back-line in the summer transfer window, but up-front, they let Sanchez and Lukaku leave without replacing them. Therefore, Man United boss is now looking to strengthen the attack in the January transfer window and a Werner is in the limelight.
According to an exclusive story reported by The Express, the Ole Gunnar Solskjarer has stepped up his interest in attracting the German striker, who has been linked with European Champions Liverpool for quite some time.
The British source have mentioned that Manchester United are keen to sign the Kaiser to develop their strike-force, but they could be forced to wait by the Bundesliga club, who would want their prized asset to stay until the summer.
RB Leipzig centre forward was in top form for the German side last season. He starred in 37 games in all competitions, netted 19 goals and also provided 10 assists.
As far as the current campaign is concerned, The 23-year-old striker has appeared in 11 games so far and directly contributed to 9 goals (8 goals and 1 assist). On Match Day 3, he netted a fantastic hat-trick against current league leaders Borussia Monchengladbach. Also, he scored a brace to get all three points for Leipzig in their opening Champions League group game away from home vs Benfica.
Werner is the real goal-scorer that we are missing at the moment, and as per reports, he has got a pretty low release clause of £27million in his deal (Football Insider).
