Liverpool eyeing move for 23-year-old Bundesliga forward

By | February 28, 2020

Liverpool have reportedly opened contract discussions with Timo Werner as they look to finalise a transfer for the RB Leipzig forward ahead of the summer.

The Merseyside Reds have long been linked with Timo Werner after his superb form in the Bundesliga, and it now seems as though they’re making significant steps towards getting him in at Anfield.

See the tweet below from Nicolo Schira, who says Liverpool have offered the Germany international a five-year deal with wages of €8million a year if he accepts the transfer.

He adds that talks are ongoing as Liverpool look to get this superb possible signing complete.

This follows claims that Timo Werner’s future is in Jurgen Klopp’s hands, with the 23-year-old’s preference to join the Merseyside Reds over other clubs.

The player has also very publicly praised Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool in recent times, so it looks likely that he will now be heading to Merseyside.

It remains to be seen how he might fit in in this Liverpool team, but Roberto Firmino has been massively linked with Bayern Munich, so he could well be a replacement for the Brazilian.
