Timo Werner believes he would ‘fit in very well’ at Anfield, as he bigged up a possible transfer to Liverpool. Germany international was on the scoresheet once more as his side secured a 5-0 win on the road with Bundesliga rivals Schalke his 21st goal in Germany’s top flight this campaign.
Timo has scored four more in the Champions League, including a penalty with Liverpool’s Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur in midweek, and his red hot form has seen him linked to some of the biggest clubs in Europe.
Chelsea and Man United are among the clubs to have registered an interest in Werner, clubs compatriot Didi Hamann believes he would be better served moving to at this stage in his career, but Reds are also thought to be planning to trigger the £60m release clause in his deal.
And the 23-year-old centre-forward is doing little to pour cold water on those talks and believes he would be a good addition to Jurgen Klopp’s squad. ‘There’s one of the best managers in the world with Jurgen Klopp, and he is also German,’ he said when asked about Merseyside club after Saturday’s game.
“Many things suggest that I would maybe fit in [at Liverpool] very well with my playing style. But I don’t think about that at the moment because we have so much to do with Leipzig.
‘I won’t rule out anything. We have the European Championship in the summer, I want to focus on that competition.’ His current coach Julian Nagelsmann warned Timo, however, that he would have to bide his time if he did move to Merseyside club.
