But before deciding for RB Leipzig, Werner was in talks with other clubs, the striker has revealed in an interview with Die Welt.
"There was contact with other clubs. But I don't want to say exactly who I was in contact with. There's no point in talking about other clubs retrospectively," Werner said.
Ultimately, the 23-year-old decided to stay put, and makes it clear that there isn't any shame in that.
"Signing a contract with a good, ambitious and attractive German club like RB Leipzig doesn't make me a coward," Werner told Die Welt.
Werner has started out the 2019/20 season season in red-hot form, scoring five goals in his first three Bundesliga appearances.
