Timo Werner has begun to have second thoughts about a move to Liverpool and is entertaining the thought of signing for Inter Milan, according to reports.
The RB Leipzig striker has become one of European football’s hottest properties having scored 27 goals in 37 appearances this season.
The Germany international has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield in recent months and fuelled those flames in February by declaring his admiration for compatriot Jurgen Klopp and his side’s style of play.
The latest report – three months later – has indicated that Werner’s preference remains to move to Liverpool, or to stay at Leipzig for another season.
The report claims that “something has changed” with Werner’s situation and the striker is beginning to have doubts about Liverpool’s interest.
The Reds, who have been seriously keen on paying Werner’s £52million release clause, are now wondering whether to retract their interest given the financial uncertainties surrounding the sport.
Inter, meanwhile, have been encouraged and have now “officially entered” the race for the striker.
Werner was back in action for Leipzig on Saturday in a 1-1 draw with Freiburg, a result which saw the hosts lose ground on top two Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, who both won.
Dortmund battered Schalke 4-0 in their derby clash, while Robert Lewandowski notched his 40th goal of the season in Bayern’s 2-0 win over Union Berlin.
In other news, Liverpool have reportedly made an enquiry into the availability of Manchester City winger Leroy Sane.
