The Germany worldwide has been regularly linked with a move to the Merseyside outfit over the past couple of seasons but a deal has failed to materialise so far.

Roberto Firmino has struggled with injury problems in the final months of the season to hamstring Liverpool FC's options up front. He has so far made 112 appearances for the Red Bulls and has scored 61 goals.

Liverpool could be the next destination for the German forward who is also linked with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

Mintzlaff's reply will have certainly raised the eyebrows of supporters of Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool and PSG.

"The situation is still the same. Timo Werner would rather not sign an extension", he said. "But that could change". 'I don't think it's completely out of the question that he could extend his deal.

Bayern Munich are definitely the heavy favorites going into the final day of the season, but if the previous 33 matchdays are anything to go by, we will be in for another day of high drama with many twists and turns expected. Fail to perform in their last match away at Bayern Munich, and Adi Hutter's side is in danger of gambling away their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League and even the Europa League. Maybe he would rather join (Thomas) Tuchel in Paris, (Jurgen) Klopp at Liverpool or (Lucien) Favre at Dortmund.' Leipzig finish their league campaign this weekend at Werder Bremen before the German Cup final against Bayern on May 25.

Ever since joining RB Leipzig from VfB Stuttgart, Werner have been a consistent deliver.
