Timo Werner was in lethal form for RB Leipzig on Saturday as the German Bundesliga side put Mainz to the sword with an emphatic 8-0 win – and Liverpool fans have reacted on Twitter by urging their club to sign the German striker.
Werner, 23, took his tally to 13 in just 15 appearances for Leipzig this season with a hat-trick. Werner created the first before tapping in from a yard out to make it two after an excellent counter-attacking move from Leipzig, leaving Mainz shellshocked.
The 28-time Germany international laid on a pass for the third and flicked round the corner for the fourth, before passing into Marcel Sabitzer for the fifth – only for the Austrian’s shot to be parried, and turned in by Yussuf Poulsen.
After the break, Werner made it six with a perfect finish after being played in on the left. Again, Werner was involved in Leipzig’s seventh goal – picking out a perfect cross for Nordi Mukiele to head home. He tapped home the eighth.
Amazingly, Werner was either involved, scoring or laying on an assist for all eight of Leipzig’s goals. It is no surprise, then, that Liverpool are desperate to bring him to Anfield – with The Mirror claiming his contract includes a buyout clause of £27million.
Liverpool fans reacted on Twitter to the news that Werner had produced a stunning display for Leipzig on Saturday, scoring three, assisting three, and being involved in the other two for Julian Nagelsmann’s side. Reds fans want him signed.
Werner is actually perfect for us, buy him NOW @LFC

Just read that Timo Werner has a £27m buy out clause, if this is true we should be snapping him up in January #LFC

13 goals and 6 assists in 15 appearances already this season — Werner would be the ideal cover for the front three and £27m is a bargain.
Would become even better under Klopp as well. https://t.co/YZSyGaRTIk
