Timo Werner’s move to Tottenham is now imminent. The German international is set to join the Premier League club on loan from RB Leipzig, with an option to buy for €17 million, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Werner, 27, has been struggling for form at Leipzig this season, scoring just two goals in 14 appearances in all competitions. He has been linked with a move away from the club for several months, and Tottenham have now emerged as the frontrunners to sign him.
The deal is expected to be completed in the coming days, once Werner completes his medical and the two clubs finalize the paperwork.

Werner’s arrival would be a major boost for Tottenham, who are currently seventh in the Premier League. He would provide the club with another option up front, and he could form a dangerous partnership with Harry Kane.
Werner is a versatile forward who can play as a striker, winger, or attacking midfielder. He is known for his pace, movement, and finishing ability. He scored 93 goals in 157 appearances for Leipzig before joining Chelsea in 2020.
Werner’s move to Tottenham would be a second chance for him to prove himself in the Premier League. He struggled to make an impact at Chelsea, scoring just 10 goals in 56 appearances.
However, Werner is still a talented player, and he could be a valuable asset for Tottenham. He could help the club to challenge for a place in the Champions League next season.
