RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner has spoken of his admiration of English football amid continued speculation linking him with a move to the Premier League. 

The Germany international has long been one of the most exciting forwards in European football, and although he signed a contract with his current team in August, it’s expected he will attract serious interest from high-profile clubs at the end of the campaign.

Speaking to Bild (h/t James Olley of the Evening Standard), Werner said he would be open to joining a Premier League side in the future:

“The Premier League is certainly the most interesting league, you have to say. There is a certain flair to watching the English league and playing there.

“But many Germans have also been very successful in Spain, such as Sami Khedira and Mesut Ozil [who both played for Real]. As of now I have no desire to look for a move elsewhere.”

Olley reported Chelsea have made the Germany star a transfer target, while he has also been consistently mentioned as an option for Real Madrid.

Bayern Munich have also been linked with the striker, although their sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic recently said Werner is not a player they will be pursuing:
