RB Leipzig chief Mintzlaff 'deeply relaxed' about Liverpool target Werner

RB Leipzig chief executive Oliver Mintzlaff insists there's no panic around Timo Werner's plans for next season.

Werner has been open about hopes of joining Liverpool this summer.

But Mintzlaff told Sky Deutschland: "I'm deeply relaxed about Werner.

"He hasn't signalled yet that he wants to leave at the end of the season and he doesn't have to.

"He has a contract until 2023."

Germany international forward Werner, 24, is widely expected to leave the Bundesliga side in the summer, with the Reds said to be leading the the chase for a player who would add to their already formidable attacking options.
