Liverpool target Timo Werner may not be able to seal Premier League moves this summer due to coronavirus chaos, emphasizes RB Leipzig director
- Timo Werner has been linked with a move to the Premier League
- Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United are all interested in the striker
- RB Leipzig director Markus Krosche thinks coronavirus can stop the movement
- Coronavirus symptoms : what are they and should you consult a doctor?
The RB Leipzig star has previously talked about a move to the Premier League, but the chances of Werner's membership with a rival European club have declined due to the corona virus.
Krosche, speaking to Sport1 said of Werner who left in the summer: & # 39; It is clear that Timo has aroused interest from other clubs for his great performance with his goals and helps.
& # 39; England has the same problems as us. The crisis is not just one league, it is having a global impact and we cannot say if things will be the same in six months. & # 39;
When asked if this means that Werner could stay, Krosche added: "Everything is possible.
& # 39; We do not know how the transfer market is developing. We look at a very foggy glass ball. We don't know what our resources are and what the other clubs have in terms of opportunities. & # 39;
RB Leipzig eliminated Tottenham from the Champions League in their last game before the corona virus ended German and European football.
They are third in the Bundesliga behind leaders Bayern Munich and second in Borussia Dortmund.
Chelsea & # 39; focuses attention on Moussa Dembele of Lyon as Liverpool tries to beat them with Timo Werner signing & # 39;
- Chelsea has turned its attention to trying to sign Lyon striker Moussa Dembele
- The Blues seem to be defeated by Timo's signature Werner by Liverpool 
- Frank Lampard, eager to strengthen attack options in the summer transfer window ]
Chelsea are reportedly switched their focus to bring in Lyon striker Moussa Dembele in the summer transfer window.
The Blues were interested in RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, who scored 27 goals this season, but Liverpool seems to be ahead of Chelsea in that regard.
As reported by The Athletic Chelsea would now like to sign Dembele, the one in 27 [1945903016keergesaldeerdheeft]. ] Call 1 this campaign will appear.
Dembele started his senior career at Fulham before joining Celtic before moving to Lyon in 2018.
A former French Under-21 international, Dembele, now 23 , is highly sought after.
Chelsea is eager to strengthen their offensive assets, especially with Olivier Giroud in the summer without a contract.
Tammy Abraham scored 13 Premier League goals this season, but has endured injury problems, so further backup is required, especially as Michy Batshuayi was inconclusive.
Chelsea is in fourth place in the Premier League, but Frank Lampard would like to make sure that his team is strong enough to continue next season.
Timo Werner made a possible move this summer to the Premier League and fans got even more a chance to judge the German attacker in the Champions League on Tuesday.
In the run-up to Tottenham, his comments have increased the chances of an exit, although he appears to be in conflict with his decision.
& # 39; At the moment there are in the provoe tbal two different variations, & # 39; he said. & # 39; The first is to be part of a team like Liverpool or Manchester City.
& # 39; They have a good working team. The teams also have great coaches.
& # 39; The other side are teams that need big changes because they just won some big titles but can't compete at the highest level anymore. For me, Manchester United is one of these teams.
& # 39; At this point in my career I wonder: do I want to be part of a new team, build something coming up with news, or do I want to stay with my team and make something great? & # 39;
With the trio of interested teams checked by the player himself, Sportsmail assesses where it would fit and how suitable it is for each game.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is slowly but surely adding the pieces he wants to bring Manchester United back to championship candidates.
Victory over Manchester City over the weekend once again demonstrated the impact the signing of Bruno Fernandes in January had on the team. His vision and decisiveness is the envy of strikers across the country, and should he be linked to an attacker as mobile and clinical as Werner, the league could be notified.
Given their predicament, competing for the top four, United could certainly take a striker who is a guarantee of goals, proven at the highest level.
But the only caveat is that Solskjaer is a big fan of Anthony Martial as the No. 9 and there is no situation where Werner leaves RB Leipzig to heat the bank of an English club.
If the focus is on Jadon Sancho to fill that right spot, Werner may be overlooked. But if Odion Ighalo is not detained and a number 9 becomes a priority, few are better suited to this fast team than Werner this summer.

Going to the Liverpool frontline might be one of the most difficult challenges in Europe.
Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah are one of, if not the, most terrifying triumvirate and so it would take a special kind of player to usurp one of them for a starting place.
Werner's £ 51 million release clause ends in April, and with Jurgen Klopp, a manager who likes to settle his business early, he can find a quick deal before the end of the season.
Even as Liverpool is moving towards the Premier League title, Klopp wants to continue to strengthen his side and is a well-known admirer of Werner, a player who can adapt and a world-class player to play with in the rotation of the attack.
Firmino is the one that's hard to replace given his unique style, but Werner would give Klopp a clinical finisher that can push high and defend can stretch to open up more space for the midfield.
Whether Werner would accept the situation of not being the undisputed number 1 remains to be seen. At United, he would likely get regular minutes, but given Liverpool's success in all competitions, his chances for Anfield's silverware would increase dramatically.
Eligibility Classification : 4/5
If this season has told Manchester City anything, summer is absolutely crucial.
They made a feeble attempt to defend their title and while much of their misery is defensive, some players on the side have approached or neared the end of their cycle.
David Silva leaves, Vincent Kompany has already left, and at the age of 31, City needs a world-class replacement who is waiting when Sergio Aguero returns to his native Argentina, something he has previously suggested. He will no longer have a contract in 2021 and will likely see that.
Gabriel Jesus is now the stand-in and while impressed by fits and starts, Werner is one of the most successful strikers in Europe and a player who would be a new focal point for City's attack .
The problem for City is that Werner, with Aguero nearby, should be patient and enter the early years of his career at age 24, that will likely prove to be a problem. The city's priorities currently lie elsewhere due to their defensive woes, so they may miss the in-form German's boat.

He continued to check the Manchester United name, while admitting the Old Trafford club was no longer what they once were.
& # 39; The other side are teams that need some big changes because they have just won a few big titles, but they can no longer compete at the highest level. Manchester United is one of these teams for me.
Werner then opened the door to stay with RB Leipzig and help the team win silverware.
He added: & # 39; So at this point in my career I ask myself: do I want to be part of a new team, build something new or do I want to stay with my team and make something great? & # 39;
