Man Utd target Timo Werner ‘on verge of Tottenham transfer’ as talks at final stages | Football | Sport

United are keen to bolster their forward ranks over the coming weeks, with a striker to compete with Rasmus Hojlund for the No. 9 spot viewed as a priority. With a limited budget available, Erik ten Hag has been scouring the market for cut-price reinforcements.

Leipzig’s Werner has been among the considerations at Old Trafford, with his struggles since returning to the Bundesliga catching the eye of top clubs around Europe. However, the Red Devils may no longer have the opportunity to secure the services of the 27-year-old.

According to Sky Sports Germany, Tottenham are closing in on a six-month loan deal for Werner and negotiations are expected to be wrapped up by today. The versatile forward is said to be willing to leave Leipzig’s training camp to put pen to paper in north London, and Spurs are hopeful of striking a deal imminently.

Conversations are ongoing about the ‘final details’ of the deal, with an option to make the loan move permanent still to be discussed between the two clubs. With United also monitoring the situation closely, it remains to be seen whether they are willing to table an offer of their own or simply allow one of their top targets to join a rival outfit.

Werner is capable of playing anywhere across the frontline and his high-pressing, energetic style could suit Ange Postecoglou’s desires as a rotational option. Tottenham have made a strong start to the campaign and have been revolutionised by their manager, with the club hoping to return to the top four and challenge for silverware in what remains of the campaign.
