According to an exclusive report courtesy of French news outlet le10sport, Jurgen Klopp, with the help of Michael Edwards as sporting director, are ‘ready‘ to charge for long-time Reds target Timo Werner – especially if either Sadio Mane or Mohamed Salah choose to leave Merseyside.
As per this news, Klopp has made Werner one of his ‘top priorities‘ ahead of next summer’s transfer window, with the club and Edwards by proxy ready to make a move if one of our star front three decide to head for the exit door.
Will Liverpool land Werner this summer?
Yes, imagine him at Anfield
No, our front three are untouchable
Our manager has been a huge admirer of the ‘absolutely rapid‘ 24-year-old in the past, so much so that this report claims he has been ‘personally involved‘ in his potential transfer to the Premier League – calling him directly ‘several times‘.
Indeed, the chances of Werner staying at RB Leipzig for next season look ‘very slim‘, and Liverpool are apparently ready to prioritise a move for the £52 million-rated ace – who has bagged a noteworthy 21 goals in 25 league starts this season according to WhoScored.
Now, given this most recent development, it appears likely that the German boss and Edwards have placed Werner at the very top of their priority list for next summer.
