But BBC Sport understands Liverpool are not interested in signing Werner, who has scored 25 league goals this season
Reports suggest his release clause is about £54m.
He has impressed at Leipzig following his 2016 transfer from hometown club Stuttgart.
Werner scored a hat-trick in Leipzig’s recent 5-0 victory over Mainz and he also netted three times against the same opposition in an 8-0 win before Christmas.
In January, Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard was linked with Paris St-Germain forward Edinson Cavani and Napoli’s Dries Mertens but neither deal materialised.
