Liverpool fans in awe as Timo Werner shines in RB Leipzig’s 8-0 win

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.
