RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner is stalling on a new contract, according to reports in Germany, and he could be the ideal solution to Tottenham’s striker issues.

Last week, German outlet Bild claimed Spurs hold an interest in Werner, who has 11 goals in 17 Bundesliga appearances so far this season.

The 22-year-old has been one of Germany’s most highly rated strikers for a while now despite his young age – Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Dortmund are also said to be keen.

A new report from Bild suggests Werner is unsure about signing a new £100,000-a-week contract with Leipzig, which could trigger further interest.

His current deal expires at the end of next season, so if Werner doesn’t sign a new contract he is likely to leave next summer, or possibly even this month.

Tottenham are currently in desperate need of a striker with Harry Kane out injured and Son Heung-min away at the Asian Cup with South Korea.

Werner would be the ideal signing. He is quick, clinical and can play through the middle or out wide.

Not only would be a perfect stand-in for Kane and Son, he’d also be a suitable partner for Kane when Son misses matches – for whatever reason – in the future.

Should Spurs make a move for Werner? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.



  1. We need someone to keep pushing Kane to deliver or he’ll get dropped, nobody’s place in the team should be automatic. Timo Werner is perfect for the Job, young and hungry for a starting spot.

  2. Need to hurry as players like this get snapped up by the big guns of football !! Please Levy release the funds and get this deal done as were are up ? creek without a paddle ?

  3. Just sign him up ! Take a chance and swallow the costs. Lack of freshness has cost us the league in 16and17. Sign him Fekir and Malcom. I’d like to see Gazzanigga get the no1 shirt also.
