RB Leipzig chief Mintzlaff scoffs at Werner Liverpool rumours

RB Leipzig chief exec Oliver Mintzlaff insists Timo Werner is happy where he is.

The striker continues to be linked with European champions Liverpool.

The 23-year-old has a £50million release clause in his contract and various reports have indicated that Jurgen Klopp's side are expected to trigger it in a bid to bring him to Anfield during the summer.

But Mintzlaff told Transfermarkt: "We hear these reports all the time.

"Someone makes something up, and everyone else copies it. Werner is happy here and wants to play the rest of the season."
