Timo Werner is one of the Bundesliga’s most consistent goal scorers.

RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner has said it would be a “lie” to say that he would not consider an offer from one of Europe’s biggest clubs.

But Germany international Werner told Sport 1 he would only begin to think about his future after the World Cup.

The 21-year-old has been one of the Bundesliga’s most consistent scorers since joining Leipzig from Stuttgart in 2016, notching 31 goals in 51 matches and also netting seven times in his first 10 caps for Germany.

Werner is under contract at Leipzig until 2020 but has been linked with Real Madrid and spoken of his dream of playing in the Premier League.

He said: “If you take Germany, it would be a lie to say that you would not like to play for Bayern.

“It would be a lie to say in England you’d not like to play for Manchester United or Manchester City.

“Spain — Barca or Real. There are great clubs in every league. Italy or France would not be my leagues, but the other three.

“There are so many clubs you’d like to play for. I don’t want to tie myself down. I’ll see what happens.”

Earlier this week, Leipzig sporting director Ralf Rangnick said Werner would stay at the club beyond the summer, but the attacker said: “The new season is still far away.

“We have big goals with RB, want to qualify for Champions League. Hopefully, I’ll go the World Cup after that, and only then I will think about the future.

“Right now, I feel good here at Leipzig. My contract says that I should, must, can, will play here for another two years. That’s why there are no other thoughts.”
