It’s taken Timo Werner just 10 minutes to fire RB Leipzig into the lead against Mainz in this afternoon’s Bundesliga clash.
Konrad Laimer surged down the right flank before playing a pinpoint low cross into the box, Werner was left unmarked and slotted the ball into the back of the net with a composed finish.
According to the Athletic (subscription required), Werner’s release clause for this summer’s transfer window stands at €60m (£53.6m).
The Athletic also claim that the Germany international’s desire is to either join Liverpool in the next transfer window or stay with Leipzig for another year.
Take a look at the lightning-fast attacker’s tidy finish below:
