RB Leipzig chief executive Oliver Mintzlaff has insisted he is “deeply relaxed” about the Timo Werner situation with Chelsea linked to the Germany striker.
Werner has been in scintillating form for Leipzig this season, scoring 27 goals in 36 appearances in all competitions for the Bundesliga side.
Such form means he has become one of the hottest properties in European football and has been linked with a move to Chelsea as well as Premier League rivals Liverpool.
The 24-year-old is also wanted by Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich, but Mintzlaff has insisted he is not concerned about what happens to his star striker.

“I’m deeply relaxed about Werner,” Mintzlaff said to Sky Germany.
“He hasn’t signalled yet that he wants to leave at the end of the season and he doesn’t have to. He has a contract until 2023.”
Werner was particularly impressive earlier this year, when his Leipzig side thrashed Tottenham Hotspur 4-0 over two legs in their Champions League Round of 16 tie.
The highly-rated attacker scored the only goal of the first-leg in north London and played a key part in a 3-0 win back in Germany.
Werner has netted two hat-tricks this season for Leipzig, one in a 3-1 away win at Borussia Monchengladbach, and the other in an 8-0 hammering of Mainz.
