Barcelona are reportedly interested in a summer move for the RB Leipzig, who is also wanted by Liverpool and Bayern Munich.

Despite recently holding talks with Barcelona, Daily Star claim Premier League rivals Liverpool are leading the race for the striker.

Werner recently hinted he will leave the Bundesliga at the end of the season.

“If a move were to become an issue at some point, I would be more tempted by a move abroad than a move to Bayern,” Werner told Bild.

“It’s just that the challenge of another league would appeal to me a little more than a move within the Bundesliga.

“Of course, it also important that mutual respect is there as much as possible.

“That’s why I chose RB Leipzig at the time, and why I would choose the club for [the] next step as one where I would get that feeling.”
