The 23-year-old Bundesliga striker looks to complete a move to the Premier League after this summer’s Euro 2020 despite Real Madrid also reportedly interested in his services.

Amid reports that Manchester United and Chelsea are interested to secure his transfer, Timo Werner has hinted that he will look for a move to the Premier League this summer.

The 23-year-old RB Leipzig striker has been enjoying an excellent season in Bundesliga, having already scored 18 goals in 17 league games for his side.

Werner was rumored to be on the verge of joining Bayern Munich in January but he looks set to remain a part of Julian Nagelsmann’s side for the remainder of the season.

And if his recent comments are anything to go by, the German forward would ditch the Bavarian giants in favor of a move to the Premier League before the start of next season.

In one of his previous interviews in which Werner was asked about his future, the German international made clear that he was looking for a step up in his career.  

Considering what he has told German news publication Bild earlier this week, Werner might be looking to make that step up by securing a move to one of Premier League’s big six clubs.

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

After being rejected by Real Madrid last summer, who chose to sign his Eintracht Frankfurt counterpart Luka Jovic instead, the 23-year-old doesn’t look too keen to get a move to Spanish football.

He said: “Many Germans have also been very successful in Spain, such as Sami Khedira and Mesut Ozil.”

The RB Leipzig forward made it clear that while he desires a step-up in the future, his ‘ultimate ambition’ is to win lead the Red Bulls to silverware.

Nagelsmann’s side have made a strong start to the season and currently find themselves 4-points ahead of reigning champions Bayern at the top of the table.

Although Werner’s goals have played a huge part in his club’s push for the title, Leipzig’s miser defense has also seen the side climb the heights of Bundesliga.

The Red Bull Arena residents have conceded only 20 goals in 17 league outings so far this season to boast the 2nd best defense in the top tier of German football.

With Bayern Munich struggling to put together their unbeatable form from recent years, Leipzig have as good a chance as they ever had to make 2020 their year.
