Since joining RB Leipzig from Stuttgart in 2016, Timo Werner has been one of the most exciting prospects in the Bundesliga with the potential to become one of Europe's very best.
The German forward has had a sensational season with Leipzig, scoring 21 goals in 25 games in the top-flight, thus equalling his highest goal scoring tally, with nine games remaining to play. The former Stuttgart striker has been Die Rotten Bullen's top scorer for the past three Bundesliga campaigns and this season he is challenging the Golden Boot phenom, Robert Lewandowski.
Werner’s performances so far have contributed to his side’s impressive season, where a title charge is happening once more, as Leipzig establish themselves in the Champions League as well. The club are currently third in the league and are just four points off first-place Bayern Munich and one point off second-place Borussia Dortmund.
The 24-year-old began the season in sensational form, scoring five goals in his first three games including a hat-trick against Borussia Monchengladbach, as Leipzig won their opening three games.
Here, we take a look back on Werner's magnificent season so far and whether or not he can surpass the great Lewandowski.
