Timo Werner: 'I would rather move abroad than to Bayern'

Timo Werner says he would prefer a move abroad if he were to leave RB Leipzig at some point.
It was recently reported that Timo Werner has decided that he will not be joining Bayern München this summer as he would prefer a move abroad.

The highly-rated striker, who has been heavily linked with Liverpool, has now confirmed that taking on a new challenge in a different league is more appealing to him than a switch to the German champions.

"Bayern are a great club, we don't need to talk about that. And Hansi Flick has proven that he's a really good head coach. But if a move should be an option at some point, I would rather move abroad than to Bayern," Werner told Bild and added:

"The challenge in another league would appeal more to me than a switch within the Bundesliga. Of course it also plays a role that the mutual appreciation should be at its maximum. That's why I chose RB Leipzig back then, and that's why I would choose a club that would give me that feeling again if I were to take the next step."

The German international has made 36 appearances this season with 27 goals and 12 assists to his name.
