Timo Werner Liverpool transfer: Jurgen Klopp wants to sign RB Leipzig striker

German striker Timo Werner has been tearing up the Bundesliga for the past couple of seasons and it is only natural that the RB Leipzig forward would make a move to a bigger club. In 30 games across all competitions this season, Werner has smashed 25 goals with 10 assists. Werner could be a big scoop for Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool and would fill in for the absence of Sadio Mane and Mohammed Salah, who are playing at the African Cup of Nations. The 23-year old also represents a long term option for the club and his ability to fit in anywhere across the attack will add another dynamic to Liverpool’s marauding attack.
