Timo Werner has been linked with Bayern München for months, but has remained an RB Leipzig player until now, with a final decision yet to be made on his future.

'Die Roten Bullen' certainly hasn't given up on the 23-year-old, whose contract runs until 2020, and are still hopeful that he will sign a new deal at Red Bull Arena.

"We are in communication and in very good talks with Timo," RB Leipzig sporting director Markus Krösche told Sky.

"He knows what he has here. He also knows about his role in his team. We are convinced that he can take the next step in his career with us, also as fas as his personal development is concerned," he added.

Even if Krösche doesn't want to wait 'to infinity' for Werner to make a decision, the RB Leipzig boss makes it clear that he isn't a fan of ultimatums.

"We'll see how Timo decides now."
