Liverpool have received a boost in their bid to sign Timo Werner this summer - after Inter Milan were reportedly rebuffed in an attempt to sign the RB Leipzig hotshot.

Liverpool are believed to be leading the race to sign the 24-year-old - although they face competition from Bundesliga leaders and reigning champions Bayern Munich.
