Merseyside club manager Jurgen Klopp has held a virtual transfer meeting with RB Leipzig star Timo Werner, according to journalist Raphael Honigstein. Timo has been in superb form for Leipzig this campaign, scoring 30 goals in all tournaments for the Bundesliga giants.
Honigstein believes that Jurgen Klopp’s side will sign Timo from the Bundesliga giants, with an announcement to be made later in the year, in what will no doubt excite Liverpool supporters who’ve been following this saga.
The German centre-forward has a release clause of £55m, according to Honigstein, and is wanted by several top clubs across Europe, but it seems as though Liverpool are leading the race for his signature.
Timo would certainly be a great signing to the Reds squad and in signing the attacker, Jurgen Klopp will relieve some of the pressure off of his current front three of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
However, there may well be other top clubs showing an interest too who might need a new signing up front more than Liverpool do right now, so they could do well to act fast and get this deal done before it’s too late.
