Timo Werner is a German professional football player who presently plays as a striker for RB Leipzig.

Timo Werner was born on 6 March 1996 in Stuttgart and was interested in playing football since his childhood days.

He joined VfB Stuttgart’s academy in 2002 and made his first senior appearance for the club in 2013 against Bulgarian side, Botev Plovdiv, at the age of 17. He became the youngest player to ever play and later, score for the club.

In 2016 Werner signed for RB Leipzig, where he became the youngest player to ever reach 100 and 150 Bundesliga appearances.

Having played a vital role in the incredible rise of RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga and led the German line during the summer’s World Cup, Timo Werner is on a rapid rise to becoming one of the best strikers on the planet.

He is known for his great finishing, as the German is one of the coolest men in front of goal you’ll ever see. Timo is a born goalscorer and is already compared to Miroslav Klose, the all-time leading scorer of the national team of Germany.

At just 22 years old, he has played 178 Bundesliga games and scored 58 goals.

Werner was part of the German national team that won FIFA Confederation Cup in 2017, being the top scorer of the competition. He has made 23 appearances in total for Germany, scoring on nine occasions. However, he failed to find the net in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Quiz: How well do you know the nicknames of the European national teams?

The UEFA EURO 2020 qualifiers have started on Thursday night, so it is time to test your knowledge about the nicknames of the European national teams. Good luck and have fun!

While Werner remains with RB Leipzig this season, it would come as a huge shock if he didn’t move to Bayern Munich or another European giant next term.

Real Madrid see him as a possible replacement for their French striker, Karim Benzema and Liverpool’s German boss Jurgen Klopp wants to bring Werner in the Premier League, but the Bavarians are the favorites for his signature.

Timo Werner has already expressed his desire to move to Munich in an interview with Sky Sports Germany, saying:

“I’ve had a nice two and a half years at Leipzig, so they are in the picture [for next season].

“There are other clubs in the picture. If you play in Germany and want to stay in Germany, there is only one club in question.”

Of course, it is natural that Werner, as a German would like to wear the shirt of the most successful Bundesliga team – Bayern Munich.

We think they would be a perfect fit and Werner has the quality to lead the German champions to many titles in the future.
