Liverpool in Pole Position to Sign Bundesliga No.11 Attacker

June 7, 2018

RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner has dropped massive hint yet that he is ready to follow Naby Keita to Anfield.

The Germany international forward who has been rumoured with a switch to Premier League has found back of the net 42 times in 77 appearances for the Bundesliga outfits since joining them back in 2016 and has been included in Joachim Low’s 23-man squad for the upcoming world-cup tournaments.

Werner’s form has seen him linked with a move to Liverpool in particular, the team that secure services of his former teammate Naby Keita last August.

“To become a world-class player, I’ll probably have to play in an even better team at club level,’ he told Welt.

‘I want to be honest, Naby Keita hasn’t become world class with us either, he may now be at Liverpool.’

The Merseyside Reds have already wrapped up the signing of AS Monaco’s versatile midfielder Fabinho and are pressing ahead with their pursuit of France international attacker Nabil Fekir as well as £79m-rated AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson.

Earlier this year Werner spoke of his desire to play in the Premier League to further his career, but at that stage was in no rush to move to England.

‘Yes, playing in the Premier League is a dream for me,’ he told FourFourTwo.

‘I would like to play for two or three clubs, and Manchester United are one of those clubs.

‘But probably not in the next few years – later, when my English is a little bit better! I’m very comfortable at RB Leipzig, though.
