Liverpool ready to test RB Leipzig resolve with Werner offer

Liverpool ready to test RB Leipzig resolve with Werner offer”

He is one of the brightest attacking prospects Europe, drawing interest from around the continent including a host of Premier League clubs.

Although Liverpool have been linked to 22-year-old German striker Timo Werner in the past, we are getting some strong indications that this is not just a case of "once a Liverpool-linked player, always a Liverpool-linked player".

Werner was the Bundesliga's fourth highest goalscorer with 21 goals last campaign behind only Anthony Modeste, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Robert Lewandowski.

Not only has Werner been linked with both Liverpool and Manchester United in recent months, but today The Independent reported that it is Jürgen Klopp who has shown the greatest interest in bringing Werner in this summer.

Although Liverpool will want to do a deal before that competition they have experience of long negotiations with RB Leigzig after the Naby Keita transfer saga.

Liverpool aren't seemingly Werner's preferred choice though as he recently admitted in an interview that his dream would be to play for the Red Devils.

While he revealed that "playing in the Premier League is a dream for me", Werner also added that he wasn't planning a move to England "in the next few years". I'm very comfortable at RB Leipzig, though.

Liverpool are still the only team to have beaten Manchester City in the league this season and at times have looked unplayable, with their creative players; Mane, Salah, and Firmino especially, tearing apart a number of #Premier League defenses this season. They were the two that I'm a little bit a fan of, because they have so much history, ' said Werner.

"In Liverpool, it's also their stadium and the atmosphere. I'm now at a point where at some stage in the future I'd like to play in a team that wins titles".
