Timo Werner is once again being linked with a move to Liverpool. SportBild reported this week, as relayed by the Daily Mail, that the Reds are leading the chasing pack for the German international.
The report claims that Werner has a £51 million release clause active until the end of April, making him a decent price considering his record this season. The attacker has scored 25 goals in 30 games this season for his club.
It is an easy leap to make. Werner is a top German talent and Jurgen Klopp is a german manager who will know the player’s qualities well.
But the deal would seem odd considering previous reports regarding Klopp’s interest in the Leipzig star.
In 2018, when the first rumours of Werner to Anfield began circulating, it was quickly shut down.
The Liverpool Echo stated that Liverpool had ‘no interest’ in Werner, with Klopp deciding Werner would not improve his attacking options.
Those attacking options have not changed and with reported interest in Jadon Sancho, it would be hard to see how Werner fits.
In the past, Klopp has seemed disinterested in the German forward and despite his improved form, it would be odd for that opinion to have suddenly changed.
