RB Leipzig are not too concerned about Timo Werner’s future as the striker is in no hurry to quit the club, according to CEO Oliver Mintzlaff.

With numerous European giants taking interest in him, Timo Werner is expected to quit the Red Bull Arena at the end of this season.

Scoring 21 goals from 25 matches, Werner has been one of the most outstanding performers in Bundesliga this season and is challenging Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski for the golden boot.

Liverpool is being tipped as his most likely highly destination. However, Barcelona, Bayern, and the Manchester clubs all appear to be in line for securing his services.

But RB Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff is quite calm over the club’s star striker’s future.

“I’m deeply relaxed about Werner,” Mintzlaff told Sky Sports.

“He hasn’t signaled yet that he wants to leave beyond this season. And he doesn’t have to. He has a contract until 2023.”
