German forward Timo Werner has relentlessly been rumoured with a move to Liverpool, and this has hardly slowed down during the coronavirus pandemic.
With the lockdown seriously impacting the business side of football in Europe it’s unclear if fees – like the one required for the Werner – will be able to be thrown about when the summer transfer window will be re-opened.
However, apparently the Merseyside Reds need not worry about another team swooping in for Timo Werner, because the young forward has made a decision behind closed doors.
According to The Athletic, the Leipzig man has decided that he wants to swap RB Leipzig shirt has been Liverpool.
If it’s to be believed, this is great news for the Merseyside Reds as Bayern Munich, Chelsa and Man Utd were all believed to be interested in the German attacker.
Werner would be an excellent addition to Jurgen Klopp’s attacking end, even if it doesn’t immediately settle in the Starting XI due to the high competition up front.
The German striker could play in any position across the front three, however, he’s best suited in the centre – where Firmino currently plays.
A popular theory is that the Brazilian could move back operating as an attacking midfielder, and German forward would play as the striker.
