Man Utd boss Solskjaer eyeing RB Leipzig striker Werner

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eyeing RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.

But Solskjaer could be forced to wait to get his man, says the Sunday Express.

RB Leipzig striker Werner has become one of Europe's most sought-after forwards and Solskjaer is keen to strengthen his forward line.

Werner, 23, has been with Leipzig for the last three seasons scoring 68 times in 124 appearances in all competitions.

He has been a long-time target for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and only signed a new four-year deal at the start of this season but the Premier League vultures are still circling.

Werner is on Solskjaer's shopping list and would be a longer-term solution for his misfiring forward line than veteran Juventus star Mario Mandzukic.
