According to a report from Tuesday’s print edition of La Gazetta dello Sport via sempreinter.com, Inter Milan look set to go ‘head to head‘ with Liverpool over long-time Jurgen Klopp target Timo Werner in the summer – especially given the Reds’ hesitancy to pay his £52 million release clause.
Due to the current global pandemic, Liverpool are cautiously playing a waiting time before deciding to pay the required fee for Werner’s signature – with this report claiming Inter are ready to pounce with interest of their own.
Are you worried by Inter's interest in Werner?
Yes, they're a big club with appeal
No, he's definitely coming to Anfield
Werner, who has bagged an impressive 21 goals in 24 Bundesliga starts this season, is currently at the centre of a transfer saga with the Reds – and a recent piece from Sky Sports hinted that the Germany international could be open to an Anfield move should we trigger his release clause.
Reacting to the news, these Liverpool fans have mixed opinions – with some claiming Klopp will land his man regardless of new competition.

LFC doing their due diligence in uncertain financial times. Patience required as the club, manager and player seem tailor made for each other.
