RB Leipzig won’t spend big to replace outgoing star Timo Werner, according to the club’s managing director, Oliver Mintzlaff.
Replacing the Germany forward poses a real headache for Julian Nagelsmann and his team, with Werner having plundered 34 goals in 45 games in all competitions this season.
That consistent goalscoring form convinced Chelsea to pay £47.5 million ($59m) for his services but, as clubs are hit by the financial consequences of the coronavirus crisis, Leipzig will be looking for value for money in his replacement.

Speaking to Kicker, Mintzlaff said Leipzig would “act a little more cautiously in the transfer market than we did in the past - we will spend far less than we got for Timo Werner.
