RB Leipzig midfielder Forsberg urges Werner to resist Liverpool interest

RB Leipzig midfielder Emil Forsberg hopes Timo Werner will resist interest from Liverpool and Bayern Munich.

Werner is out of contract at Leipzig in less than 18 months with the Bundesliga side having said they will look to move the £60million-rated Germany international on in the next transfer window if he doesn't agree a new deal at the club.

And Werner's Leipzig team-mate, Forsberg, has urged the forward to follow his instincts.

“Timo is the new face of German football," said Forsberg told Bild.

“He's the future. To keep him at RB would be great for the whole club.

“I know that he feels very comfortable in Leipzig and with what he has at the club.

“But I can't talk him into anything. He has to trust his gut feeling."
