Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea only have 12 days to land Timo Werner for less than £50million.
The Germany striker has bagged 31 goals in 40 appearances for RB Leipzig this term, meaning a number of top European sides are chasing his signature.
Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Barcelona are reportedly eyeing up a deal, while the Reds, United and Chelsea have also been linked with a move.
But if any potential suitor wants to sign Werner for £49million in the summer transfer window, they only have until Monday 15 June to do so by activating his current release clause.

After that date, clubs will have to negotiate a fee with Leipzig, who still have the player under contract until 2023.
Reports suggest Werner has set his sights on a move to Liverpool this summer.
According to The Athletic , the 24-year-old’s representatives held talks with Barcelona last month – but he remains determined to join Jurgen Klopp ’s side.

He recently expressed his desire to play abroad, telling Bild : “If a move were to become an issue at some point, I would be more tempted by a move abroad than a move to Bayern.
“It’s just that the challenge of another league would appeal to me a little more than a move within the Bundesliga.
“Of course, it also important that mutual respect is there as much as possible.
Chelsea are also said to be eyeing up a potential deal for Werner
