Timo Werner and Naby Keita linkup on the cards as new SportBild report links Liverpool with RB Leipzig star

Dynamic positional play, breathtaking counter-attacks and ruthless finishing have been the standard of Liverpool’s deadly attack.

Jurgen Klopp expects nothing less than workmen like displays from his team, week in and week out.

With the lightning-quick attack consisting of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, a sturdy midfield and a rock-solid defence, this Liverpool side already appears to be top-notch in its current shape.

However, the club’s scouts are always on the lookout for the best of talents around the globe in order to reinforce the squad.

Having already procured the signing of midfielder Naby Keita from RB Leipzig, Klopp might once again be eyeing the Bundesliga club to bolster up his squad.

Liverpool fans are hot on the heels of the new rumour as the reliable German news reporter, Christian Falk from SportBild reported today about Liverpool’s interest in Timo Werner.

According to the report, the Leipzig striker has a release clause of about 60m euros, a fee that would certainly feel like a bargain for a player of his calibre, especially considering today’s inflated market.

Werner has amassed a staggering 20 goals in the current Bundesliga season, lagging only two goals behind Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski for the Torjägerkanone (top-scorers trophy).

Thanks to his contribution, Leipzig are just one point behind Bayern in a fiercely contested title race. With quite a bit of pace and top-notch finishing in his locker, Werner seems to tick all the boxes for Liverpool.

His understanding with Naby Keita can also be something which might have attracted Klopp’s interest as a clip of the dynamic duo ripping apart Bundesliga defences for fun back in their Leipzig days has been making rounds on the internet –

However, Liverpool need to be wary as they are not alone in the race to sign the German ace with interests from European giants like Bayern and other Premier League clubs as well.

The Reds faithful would hope that the club’s sporting director, Michael Edwards can strike the deal to bring Timo Werner at Anfield as early as the upcoming summer transfer window.
