RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann admits he is powerless to stop Timo Werner from leaving the club.
Nagelsmann said: "There is nothing we can do about it. He knows what he has in Leipzig and also what he has with me.
"I show him that — he gets many chances to develop himself. I don't know if it will help him that much if I tell him every day.
"A player has to feel that he can get better. If he doesn't feel that, it wouldn't do any good if I kept on telling him to stay here.
"In the end, it is his life, his career, he can decide that. I can't think of anything new to say to Timo."
