Liverpool FC have been handed a potential boost in the race to sign RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have cooled their interested in the Germany international to clear Liverpool FC’s path to sign the striker.

The same article states that Bayern are targeting Manchester City winger Leroy Sane ahead of Werner to leave Liverpool FC with no competition for the RB Leipzig talisman.

According to the same story, the Champions League holders would be reluctant to meet RB Leipzig’s £50m asking price for the 23-year-old in the summer transfer window.

The Daily Mirror report goes on to suggest that Liverpool FC’s past dealings with RB Leipzig after signing Naby Keita in a £48m deal last summer could help their prospects of reaching a deal.

Werner has scored 50 times in 93 games in Bundesliga since his move to RB Leipzig from Stuttgart in the 2016 summer transfer window.

Liverpool FC are thought to be eager to improve their squad depth this summer after Daniel Sturridge and Alberto Moreno left the Merseyside outfit.

The Reds won the Champions League title earlier this month after Liverpool FC were 2-0 winners against Tottenham Hotspur in the Madrid showpiece.
