Chelsea are plotting a move to try to snatch RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner from under the noses of Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp, the Liverpool manager, wants to add Werner to his squad in the next transfer window, but the Premier League leaders are yet to match his £53 million (€60m) release clause.

Werner is thought to be keen on a move to Anfield, but Chelsea are now ready to make an offer with his release clause set to expire on June 15.

Both Liverpool and Chelsea may be willing to allow Werner's release clause to expire because it drops to £36 million (€40m) in 12 months and the German club are said to be resigned to losing the 24-year-old.

That means clubs could try to negotiate a fee between £36 million and £53 million to take Werner away from the German side this summer.

Julian Nagelsmann, the Leipzig manager, was asked about Werner's future after the Germany international scored in Monday night's victory over Cologne and said: "There is nothing we can do about it. He knows what he has in Leipzig and also what he has with me.

"I show him that - he gets many chances to develop himself."

Chelsea's biggest hurdle would seemingly be to convince Werner to give up on a move to Anfield while their own Champions League qualification is still in the balance.

Liverpool are sure to be in next season's Champions League and stand on the brink of winning the Premier League, while Chelsea are fourth and face an end-of-season race to secure qualification. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
