A January move for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner is looking increasingly likely, according to the latest reports from Germany's main sporting tabloid.
Werner's current sporting predicament has already led to some transfer rumors surfacing. Whether or not the player himself is prepared to compromise and potentially return to a smaller German club remains to be seen. Virtually all German top tier clubs - thanks to the current Africa and Asian continental championships - will be looking for additional attacking assistance during the coming January window.
Werner nevertheless will be seeking a station that offers him regular playing time and a chance of returning to the German national team ahead of this summer's Euros. Werner will also almost certainly have to agree to a large pay cut if he transfers to another club. A loan deal might enable him to retain his RB salary or allow his German club to pay a certain percentage of it.
