Transfer report: Arsenal join rivals in race for £50m-rated German striker

Arsenal have joined the chase for £50million-rated German striker Timo Werner, according to reports.

Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea have already been linked with the 21-year-old, who has 16 goals and four assists for RB Leipzig this season.

Those clubs were put on alert earlier this week following reports claiming the Germany international has rejected a new contract with the Bundesliga side.

And now, according to The Sun, Arsenal have joined their Premier League rivals in the race for the in-demand hitman.

Werner was the highest-scoring German player in the Bundesliga last season with 21 goals in 32 appearances – as Leipzig finished runners-up to Bayern Munich in their first ever top flight season.

Arsene Wenger is a big fan and the Arsenal boss reportedly sent scouts to watch the striker at Leipzig’s Europa League clash against Napoli on Thursday - where he scored twice in a 3-1 victory in Italy.

Werner also has seven goals in ten games for Germany, and he could link up with international team-mates Mesut Ozil , Per Mertesacker and Shkodran Mustafi if he moves to the Emirates Stadium in the summer.
