The 24-year-old has been heavily linked with a £52million summer transfer to Liverpool this summer, with Jurgen Klopp believed to be a big admirer of his compatriot.
Werner has been in sensational form this season and continued his exceptional run with a hat-trick over Mainz last weekend – taking his tally to 24 goals in 27 Bundesliga matches this campaign.
And Nagelsmann is in no doubt the forward will be regularly thinking about a possible move away, with a move to Merseyside said to be his preferred choice.
“He is in a good mood, feels good and trains well,” Nagelsmann told Sport Bild.
“I do not have the impression that he is carrying a large cross with him. But he is a young guy who is sure to sit at home with his wife and ponder whether he will stay or change.

“When the question is in the room, you are always a little bit somewhere else. It was no different for me than when in Hoffenheim, it was about whether I go away.
“It is more obvious with strikers, because then there are phases in which they do not score.”
Reports have suggested that Chelsea and Manchester United are also interested in Werner and are considering a move this summer.
