Barca look as if they’re going to rival Jurgen Klopp’s in the race to join RB Leipzig and Germany striker Timo Werner shortly.
German international has been in scintillating form so far this term, scoring 13 goals and six assists in 16 matches in all competitions, a run that involves two hat-tricks.
Following this form, it looks like Werner has caught the eye of one of the world’s biggest clubs in the way of Barcelona according to Don Balon. However, it seems like the Blaugrana are going to have a struggle on their hands if they’re to secure his services.
A recent report from the Mirror links the Reds, as well as Man United, with interest in the German international, who’s set to price any side around €50M if Don Balon’s report is anything to go off.
Werner is one of the best strikers on the planet at the moment, thus whichever side manages to join him will be getting one mighty excellent player on their hands.
Out of Liverpool and Barcelona, it’s fair to see the Blaugrana are more in need of another forward given how much Luis Suarez has refused in recent years.
The Uruguayan has looked a shadow of his former self so far this time, and given that it seems as if Barca are going to use Griezmann as a winger while Valverde is still in charge, it’s fair to say they could use Werner more than Klopp and Co.
But will they manage to get their hands on the German before the Merseyside outfit do? It looks like we’ll all have to wait and see.
