RB Leipzig star Timo Werner has admitted that a move to the Premier League is on the horizon for him, with Manchester United a possible destination.

Liverpool have been frequently linked with a move for the German international, who has bagged 37 goals in 65 games for Leipzig.

However, although Werner claims he grew up an admirer of Liverpool, it is Old Trafford where he would rather play in the future.

“Yes, playing in the Premier League is a dream for me,” he told the April issue of FourFourTwo.

“I would like to play for two or three clubs, and Manchester United are one of those clubs. But probably not in the next few years – later, when my English is a little bit better! I’m very comfortable at RB Leipzig, though.

“Manchester United and Liverpool were the teams I watched quite a lot in England. They were the two that I’m a little bit a fan of, because they have so much history. When Alex Ferguson was the coach, United won everything and were outstanding.

“In Liverpool it’s also their stadium and the atmosphere. But when I have to decide, I’m more Manchester United than Liverpool.

“I’m now at a point where at some stage in the future I’d like to play in a team that wins titles.”
