Timo Werner has told Kicker that every footballer in the world would probably think about joining Liverpool.
The German striker has been linked with moves to Anfield and to Chelsea (Bild) and the summer could see some firm bids from the Premier League.
Werner has been in fine form this season. The 23-year-old has scored 25 goals and registered 10 assists form his 28 appearances.
He has a £50 million release clause in his contract, according to Bild, and Liverpool is the player’s preferred destination.
Werner has recently been quizzed about potentially lining-up for Liverpool and he suggested that he’d be silly not to consider it.
He told Kicker: “What do you say if a club comes knocking in the next two weeks, a club which is one of the favourites for the Champions League and makes an incredible offer? Most likely every player would think about it.”
The ex-Stuttgart performer has 86 Leipzig goals to his name in 142 appearances.
Following Werner’s comments, Liverpool fans have been getting all excited on Twitter.
They believe that his comments are basically a come and get me plea to Jurgen Klopp and badly want a deal to happen.
Here is a selection of tweets from Liverpool supporters following the latest comments from the German international:
