RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner still isn't ruling out a switch abroad in the future, despite only just signing a new deal at the Bundesliga club.

The Germany international forward was long linked with a switch to Bayern Munich, but should he opt to leave Germany then Liverpool were said to be at the front of the queue to sign the 23-year-old.

Werner - who has scored 10 goals in 25 appearances for Germany - would have seen his deal at Leipzig run out in the summer, when he could have left for free, but he ended up signing a new contract just hours before scoring in Leipzig's 2-1 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday.

When asked about a possible move in the summer by Sport Buzzer , he replied: "I don't exclude anything. I am and remain a player of RB Leipzig.”

Werner added that the addition of Julian Nagelsmann as Leipzig coach this summer helped him made up his mind to stay.

“Of course, that also played a role in my thinking," he continued.
