On February 12th, we carried a report from SportBild, who explained Liverpool are ‘serious’ about signing RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner.

A day later, journalist Christian Falk explained the Champions League winners need to activate the Germany international’s clause of €55-60m before the end of April.

Jürgen Klopp has the services of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino as the three first choice players to lead the Reds’ attack.

Monday’s edition of Kicker claims the former Borussia Dortmund manager wants to ‘enrich’ the Merseyside club’s attacking division by signing Werner. Therefore, the Premier League leaders are ‘working hard’ to sign the 23-year-old.

The forward signed an extension with the Bundesliga club in August 2019 and his new deal has a clause which will allow him to leave Leipzig after this season for a ‘fixed’ sum of between €50-60m.

Werner was discussed at Bayern Munich last summer and was then available for €25m. However, they never took steps to complete his signing. 

Liverpool are now interested in Werner and apart from Klopp’s side, there are other English and Spanish clubs chasing the player.

Werner has 25 goals and 10 assists in 30 appearances in all competitions this season.
