RB Leipzig coach Hasenhuttl unsurprised Man Utd linked with Werner

RB Leipzig coach Ralph Hasenhuttl isn't surprised Premier League clubs are following Timo Werner.

The Germany striker is the subject of intense transfer speculation in England this week after admitting he'd like to play for Manchester United.

"It's my dream to play in the Premier League," Werner stated. "Manchester United is one of two, three clubs. But probably not in the next few years. First, my English needs to get a little better."

Hasenhuttl admits Werner's all-action style will be attractive to big clubs abroad.

He said, "Timo goes after balls that were already lost. We need his sprints and his depth, that is vital for our game.

"And that makes him interesting for the top clubs abroad."
