LEIPZIG: RB Leipzig managing director Oliver Mintzlaff revealed no club yet has made a formal offer for star striker Timo Werner after it was earlier reported that Chelsea had agreed a deal to land the 24-year-old.
According to Mintzlaff, Werner remains a Leipzig player as no club has triggered his buy-out clause yet, which is reportedly in the region of 53 million pounds, as per Daily Mail.
"We haven't had an exchange yet. Accordingly, we have nothing to report," Mintzlaff was quoted as saying by Sky Sports Germany as per Daily Mail.
"Timo Werner is a player for RB Leipzig. He signalled a few weeks ago that he was busy with a transfer. Until now nothing is done."
Following 30 matches, Leipzig occupy the third spot in the Bundesliga table and Mintzlaff stated Werner remains an important player for them in their push for a Champions League spot next season. IANS
