He made over 100 appearances for the club before joining RB Leipzig in 2016. He also holds the records for being the youngest player to reach 100 and 150 Bundesliga appearances, as well as being the youngest player to score two goals in a top-flight match in Germany.

A prolific goalscorer at youth international level, Werner made his senior debut for Germany in 2017. In the same year, he helped Germany claim the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup where his return of three goals earned him the tournament's Golden Boot award.
