Liverpool have no plans to sign RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner in the January transfer window.

The Reds will continue to watch the German's development, as will a number of top European clubs including Chelsea.

But the Merseyside club are also unlikely to pursue a move in the summer as things stand, as speculation over his future mounts in Germany.

Reports in Bild this week claimed Liverpool is Werner's preferred destination should he decide to move to the Premier League.

The report said it remains a question of when he decides to move on, however, having extended his contract until 2023 last summer.

Bild also reported that his new contract has a £51m release clause which will decrease year-on-year as it progresses.
