Merseyside club are close to signing RB Leipzig centre-forward Timo Werner and planning to make a bid during the summer transfer window. Jurgen Klopp keen to improve the attack and his main target is Germany international who had a fantastic season and proved his greatness one more time.
Divock Origi and Roberto Firmino linked with several clubs, Daniel Sturridge decided to change the working place, and they need replacement. German coach set to spend considerable money on the footballer in July when the transfer window opens again. Bayern Munich are also eager to sign him, and there will be a battle for the player.
Werner joined the Red Bulls from Stuttgart in 2016 with a €14m deal. He is one of the best strikers in Bundesliga and a crucial figure for the club. In this season, Timo played 37 games, scored 20 goals and made 11 assists in all competition. It is an impressive result, and he can do much more with top-class partners.
The 23-year-old centre-forward has contracted with the German club until 2020, and his release clause is around €65m. He regularly plays in the national team line-up and also made appearances in the 2018 Mundial which is a great achievement for the striker.
Probably German superstar will accept the correct offer from the German manager. He helped RB Leipzig to finish the Bundesliga in a third place and get the Champions League ticket. Liverpool will do everything to sign him this summer, but it won’t be easy as Bavarians also prepare to make an offer during the transfer window.
