“Liverpool have begun formal negotiations”: Journalist confirms Reds are keen on landing German star



Liverpool begin negotiations with RB Leipzig over Timo Werner deal

Timo Werner is one of the best forwards in the Bundesliga. The 23-year-old has blossomed at RB Leipzig since joining from Stuttgart and is a regular for the German national team too.

Werner has eight goals for Leipzig this season and has helped them to a decent start in the Bundesliga too.

The German would be excellent under Jurgen Klopp and Ian McGarry claims Liverpool are already holding discussions over a switch.

The journalist was speaking on Reach PLC’s Transfer Window Podcast and claimed Manchester United are also keen on the German (h/t Liverpool Echo):

“Timo Werner is a target for Manchester United and Liverpool in the January window but it may be the summer before he actually makes the move.

“Raphael [Honigstein] told us that it was widely believed the player has a recision clause in his contract but no-one as of yet knows what it is.”

McGarry added that the German international is also keen on moving to Merseyside:

“What we can tell you on the transfer window today is that Liverpool have begun the process of formal negotiations with RB Leipzig for the player’s transfer.

“We understand that contact has been made and indeed is ongoing between Liverpool and the German Bundesliga side and that Werner himself is keen for a move to Anfield.”

A great option for Liverpool

The 23-year-old would be an excellent addition to this Liverpool team due to his pace, movement and finishing.

He would provide a different option to Roberto Firmino up top and could make our attack more lethal.

The Reds signed Naby Keita from RB Leipzig and remained at Leipzig for a year before moving to Anfield.

It will be interesting to see if we make a similar move for Werner, and maybe we can pay a premium.

Liverpool didn’t spend much in the summer window and hopefully, that changes in the coming months.
