North London giants Tottenham Hotspur have joined Liverpool in the race to sign RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.
The petite attacker has been in sensational form for his German Bundesliga outfit this season.
He has scored 11 goals in 17 appearances for RB Leipzig in the German Bundesliga this season.
His goal contributions have propelled his German club to the top four places on the league table which will guarantee a return to the Champions League next season.
In total, Timo Werner has scored 13 goals in 21 games for club and country this season.
The interest of Tottenham Hotspur was confirmed by popular German newspaper Bild.
Bayern Munich and Liverpool are long-term admirers of Timo Werner with recent reports claiming that the player has turned down a move to the Bavarian giants.
Timo Werner has doubts about getting enough playing time with German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich with Robert Lewandowski still the undisputed first choice striker in the squad currently managed by Niko Kovac.
Liverpool could do with the firepower of Timo Werner with the Reds going head-to-head with English champions Manchester City for the Premier League title.
The Reds are four points ahead of Manchester City with 17 league games left.
Chelsea set to offer Bayern target new contract to keep them at bay ..
West London club Chelsea are willing to offer young winger Callum Hudson-Odoi a new contract at the club to ward off the interest of German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
According to the Daily Mail, they revealed that the Blues want to offer the English junior international a new long-term contract worth £70,000 on a weekly basis.
This is despite the intense transfer interest shown by Bavarian giants Bayern Munich.
Callum Hudson-Odoi, 18, has less than 18 months on his current Chelsea deal billed to expire at the end of the 2019/20 season.
The Maurizio Sarri led side Chelsea want to offer him a new deal that will see the former Chelsea Academy player commit his long-term future to the club beyond the end of next season.
Bundesliga sides Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are said to be interested in signing the English talent.
Five-time European champions Bayern Munich have already firmed up their interest in Hudson-Odoi with four separate bids including a last bid of £35m which happens to be the asking price from Chelsea.
The Blues wanted to insert a buyback clause in a potential sale of the player but that didn’t go down well with Bayern Munich.
It seems Chelsea have changed their position on Callum Hudson-Odoi and would want him to stay at the club though regular playing time could be the stumbling block for him to sign a new deal.
Huge blow for Arsenal as Bayern Munich want James Rodriguez to stay
Arsenal’s desire to sign Bayern Munich striker James Rodriguez has suffered a huge blow as Niko Kovac reveals his determination to prevent the player from leaving.
The Colombian international is reportedly set to leave Allianz Arena having been reduced to a bit-part player under Niko Kovac and reports are suggesting the Bundesliga giants hope to sell him for as low as £3m.
The Daily Mirror reported last night that the Bavarians are ready to negotiate a deal with the Gunners over his future.
In the report, the Gunners are keen on bringing Rodriguez to Emirates stadium as Emery hope to capture the World Cup star before the end of the January window.
However, Emery has been dealt a great blow in his decision to sign the 27-year-old as Kovac revealed his plan to prevent the striker from leaving his team.
Speaking to reporters ahead of Bayern’s clash with Hoffenheim, Niko Kovac debunked rumors that suggest his readiness to sell the former Real Madrid star.
According to him, James is a great player who has important roles to play in the team’s mission to leapfrog Borussia Dortmund from the top of the League standings.
He said: “He wants to stay with FC Bayern, as he once said during a fan club visit, he is highly motivated and focused,”.
James is six months from completing his two-year loan deal with the Bundesliga side and he could return to Santiago Bernabeu in the summer.
Bayern Munich speaks on Arsenal’s James Rodriguez’s future
German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has made it clear that the club do not have any intention to release James Rodriguez to Arsenal.
It was reported that the German outfit are now willing to let him leave to his real owners who are also not interested in keeping him at the club.
James Rodriquez was supposed to have a two year loan spell from Real Madrid at Bayern Munich but he is reported not to be impressing and could be asked to leave to spend the remaining six months at the Emirates Stadium.
In their reaction, the club dismissed the rumor, stating that James Rodriquez will remain with the club until the end of the season as they intend to monitor his progress to ascertain whether he would be signed on a permanent deal or meant to return to Spain.
Bayern sporting director, therefore, stated that the stand of the club on James Rodriquez will only be known at the end of the season.
He also dismissed claims that the German outfit plans to sign the player on a permanent deal and then sell him on a higher price to other suitors, adding that it is not in the style of the club to do so.
Bayern Munich Open Talks With Liverpool Target
German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have opened talks with French club Paris Saint Germain (PSG) over the possible transfer of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.
The interest of Bayern Munich was confirmed by the Daily Mirror.
Rabiot, 23, has been attracting the interests of several European clubs following his contract standoff with French Ligue 1 giants PSG.
He has less than six months left on his current deal with PSG and has already told the club that he won’t sign a new contract at the Parc des Princes.
Adrien Rabiot has already turned down numerous contract offers to stay at PSG beyond the end of this season.
Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona were the overwhelming favourites to sign the six-cap French international but his agent/mother Veronica has failed to agree a free transfer move with senior club officials at the Nou Camp and that has opened up the possibility for Bayern to hijack the transfer.
Bayern are willing to pay a transfer fee in January to sign the Frenchman rather than secure him on a free transfer this summer.
Apart from Barcelona and Bayern Munich, several clubs are also interested in a transfer for him.
European clubs like Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal have also been mentioned as potential transfer destinations for the young French midfielder.
Liverpool join Arsenal in race for unhappy Bayern Munich star
English Premier League side Liverpool are reported to have joined the North Lon don outfit Arsenal in the race to sign German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich star James Rodriguez in this winter transfer window.
James Rodriguez is currently on loan with the Bundesliga outfit with the hope that he could seal a permanent move but that might not happen again as he is reported to be unhappy at the club.
There are also no chances of him returning to Real Madrid having dropped in form which means he could be on his way out to another destination.
The North London outfit are reported to be keen on the star player who is tipped to replace Wales international Aaron Ramsey and England international DannyWelbeck.
Aaron Ramsey’s contract with the Gunners expires at the end of the season and he is failed to extend his stay while Danny Welbeck is injured and out of the season.
However, the Gunners will not find the race funny anymore with the Premier League giants Liverpool papering on the scene to also land him in the Anfield this January.
The Mirror claims the Gunners might still win the race as it is not certain James Rodriguez will find a space in the solid Reds team.
Why Liverpool Target Snubs Bayern Munich Transfer
Five-time European champions Liverpool have been boosted by the news that RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner has snubbed a transfer to German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.
Timo Werner is a transfer target for Premier League leaders Liverpool.
According to the publication from popular English news outlet Daily Express, Timo Werner rejected a transfer to the Bavarian giants due to playing time.
The petite attacker believes that he won’t be given much playing time at the Allianz Arena with Polish international star Robert Lewandowski still the undisputed first choice striker at the club.
Werner, 22, has been heavily linked with a move away from RB Leipzig in this January transfer window with doubts lingering over his long-term future with the Europa League campaigners.
He has less than 18 months remaining on his RB Leipzig which runs down at the end of next season.
The German international has already been told that he will be sold at the end of this season in the event that he fails to sign a new contract with RB Leipzig.
His form for RB Leipzig has led to the interests of several clubs including the German Bundesliga duo of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund as well as Liverpool.
He has scored 11 times in 17 games in the league this term.
Bayern Announce Liverpool Target Will Join On July 1
German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have announced that Benjamin Pavard will join the club this summer.

It was also revealed that 22-year-old will join his new club on the 1St of July.
Benjamin Pavard will join Bayern in the summer at the end of his contract with fellow German Bundesliga outfit VfB Stuttgart.
His stock rose in the summer of 2018 when he played a prominent role for the French national team at last year’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.
Benjamin Pavard was the first choice right-sided defender for the French team that won a second World Cup title by seeing off surprise finalists Croatia via a 4-2 win in their final clash in July 2018.
He also scored the best goal of the tournament with his stunning strike against Argentina in a second round clash which ended in a 4-3 victory for France.
With France trailing 2-1 to Argentina, Pavard unleashed an unstoppable strike to equalise for his side and that played a big part in the win for the French team.
He’s a utility defender that can play as a right back and as a central defender.
Finally, Liverpool Favourites To Sign Highly Rated Bundesliga Midfielder
Premier League table toppers Liverpool have emerged as overwhelming favourites to sign highly rated Schalke 04 midfielder Weston McKennie in the current January transfer window.

The three clubs are at the odds of 8/1 ahead of Borussia Dortmund who are at 12/1 odds to sign him.
Weston McKennie has proven himself to be a utility midfielder that can play as either a defensive midfielder or as a central midfielder.
The American international player has made seven appearances for the national team of the United States of America in addition to 46 appearances in the colours of Bundesliga giants Schalke 04 since he broke into the first team since the start of last season.

His RB Leipzig’s form this season is in stark contrast to the one that he endured for the German national team at last year’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.
Timo Werner didn’t score or assist any goal as Germany crashed out of the tournament in the group stage.
