Liverpool could be formidable force for years with signing of Timo Werner

The 23-year-old is reportedly on the Reds’ radar ahead of a summer transfer.

Liverpool roared 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League with a 2-0 win over Manchester United yesterday.

The Reds have been in devastating form this season; winning 21 and drawing one of their 22 Premier League games.

Liverpool look set to claim their first title since the league formed in 1992 and their supporters are loving every second of this season.

Given their astonishing campaign it’s fair to say they don’t really need to sign any players immediately.

The summer might see some movement, however, and over the weekend Timo Werner was linked with a move to Anfield.

According to Bild, the German international prefers a switch to Liverpool than Chelsea and a bid in the summer might be forthcoming.

Werner has a clause in his contract allowing him to leave for around £55 million (Express).

For a player of his ilk that looks like a steal and Liverpool should be ready to do a deal.

The 23-year-old is in blistering form for RB Leipzig this season. He has bagged 25 goals in 26 games and also registered 10 assists.

He has played largely as the team’s centre forward but can also operate on the flanks if needed to.

 

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is loyal to his current crop but it seems natural that he will try and improve his squad in the summer.

Potential

Werner is a player with bags of potential and Klopp could be the ideal manager to keep developing him.

The man with 11 goals in 29 appearances for Germany has proved the real deal during his time in the Bundesliga.

He may choose to move to a bigger club and Liverpool certainly fit that bill.

Leipzig has proved a good club for him but most players in world football would love to play for the current Liverpool team.

Werner is a lethal finisher, quick and boasts extremely quick feet.

He’d be a sensational signing if it could be completed and his presence could complete Liverpool.

Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah are all brilliant in their own right.

Werner adding competition to the ranks could well transform Liverpool into a dominant force for many years,
