Watch Liverpool transfer target Timo Werner smash a hat-trick as RB Leipzig batter Mainz 5-0 – The Sun
TIMO WERNER put Liverpool and Chelsea on red alert as he took his season tally to 30 with a stunning hat-trick against Mainz.
Werner led from the front as RB Leipzig demolished their opponents 5-0 in Sunday’s Bundesliga clash.
The striker, 24, opened the scoring in the 11th minute before Yussuf Poulsen put the visitors two ahead.
Captain Marcel Sabitzer fired in a third before the break.
But Werner was far from finished and struck a fourth in the opening minutes of the second half.
The Germany international made sure it was a win to remember with a third goal in the 75th to make it 5-0.
He now has 24 goals in just 27 Bundesliga matches this season, and 30 strikes in all competitions.
Leipzig now sit third in the table as a result, one point ahead of Bayer Leverkusen and three behind Borussia Dortmund.
However, Werner’s incredible goalscoring display is sure to do little to dispel the mounting interest from some of Europe’s elite.
Liverpool are long-term fans and Jurgen Klopp is apparently ready to offload THREE first-team players to fund a big-money move this summer.
Chelsea are also keen as they look for a new forward to lead the line.
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich are keeping close tabs despite Werner admitting he would prefer to move abroad.
And there is believed to be interest from both Real Madrid and Barcelona with Karim Benzema and Luis Suarez both nearing the end of their careers.
It’s reckoned Werner has a release clause in his contract worth a bargain £52million.
And if he continues to to fire RB Leipzig towards a Champions League spot in the Bundesliga table, there is sure to be an all-out transfer war across the continent this summer.
