The German striker has had a prolific season in the Bundesliga, scoring 21 goals in 23 games, and he has also netted four goals in the Champions League, including in last week's 1-0 victory against Tottenham .

Werner appears destined to move on in the summer because he has a £50m release clause in his contract, a fee which many elite clubs will no doubt be willing to pay.
