Timo Werner would be a perfect fit for Liverpool.

Liverpool’s hopes of signing one of Bundesliga’s rising stars in Timo Werner have been given a boost. The German has been on fire for RB Leipzig from last season when he scored 21 goals in 32 games, and he has started this season in the same vein of form as well.

The 21-year-old seems to be the next target for us and it should not come as a surprise that a number of other clubs are also looking to sign him too.

Bayern Munich, who seem to want to buy every good player from the Bundesliga, have been linked with a move for the former Stuttgart man but reports state that the Bavarian giants are not interested in the £45m rated Werner at the moment.

“We had a pleasant lunch with FC Bayern. We talked about everything, but we did not talk about Timo Werner”, Oliver Mintzlaff, the sporting director for Leipzig said about Werner’s future, who was quoted by Liverpool Echo.

Werner seems to be the perfect player for our playing style. The German has the pace to play alongside Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and even Sadio Mane and he has the composure to do well in front of goal too.

His ability to score important goals cannot be understated, and he is strong enough to hold off the opposition defence. His ability to read the game is also something to be noted.

It will be interesting to see just where Werner might end up going, given that Leipzig made our life really tough in our pursuit of Naby Keita. The Guinea star might play a bit of a hand if we want to bring Werner over but signing the German attacker also raises questions about the future of our current strikers.

Daniel Sturridge might have scored a couple of goals recently but he could be on his way out. Additionally, Divock Origi is on loan at Wolfsburg and there are chances that he too could be another departure from Anfield.

The fact that we have a couple of youngsters in Rhian Brewster and Ben Woodburn looking to break into the first-team also makes it tough for someone like Sturridge to stay at the club. The Englishman’s injury record has played a huge role in him falling down the pecking order and Werner does not really have a history of major injuries.

The German will cost a bomb, that is a surety but he would be a great signing for us given that he has a number of years left in him, with a ton of potential as well.

Ousmane Dembele

Ousmane Dembele

James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo has claimed that the Reds are not interested in launching a bid for Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele in January.

Liverpool have been linked with a massive £85million (h/t Liverpool Echo) deal for the French forward, however, the report claims that Jurgen Klopp is not willing to buy players in January as he believes the team can challenge on all fronts.

The French attacker joined the Catalan giants from Borussia Dortmund for a fee of £135million (h/t Liverpool Echo), but injuries have hurt his progress at Barcelona.

Pearce did believe that Klopp could spend in the winter window only if we are dealt with a number of injuries.

Liverpool are second in the Premier League and have a decent chance of making it out of their Champions League group too.

However, some fans were not happy with the report from Pearce and wanted the club to sign an attacking midfielder in the winter window.

Christian Pulisic

Christian Pulisic hasn’t ruled out playing in the Premier League someday. The American is one of the best youngsters in the Bundesliga and was brought to Borussia Dortmund by Jurgen Klopp.

The Express reports that Liverpool have been linked with a move for the 20-year-old.

Pulisic was quoted by the Express as saying:

“England, the Premier League, is a league where lots of kids dream of playing.

“So there is no reason why maybe one day I won’t play here.”

The Express adds that Klopp bid £11million for the American in 2016 but Dortmund rejected that offer. Pulisic has helped the club to the top of the Bundesliga this season and has two goals and two assists.

The report adds that Manchester United are also interested in the 20-year-old, and could rival any bid made by the Anfield giants.

The American added that he is enjoying his season with the Germans and knows that tabloid tales are part of the game.

Pulisic would be a wonderful addition to the team, and the youngster can play in a number of positions in the attacking third.

Mohamed Salah Liverpool

Mohamed Salah was recently in the news after being caught wearing a Playboy shirt. While many commented on his style, the Egyptian posted yet another image before the international break.

Salah is set to play for Egypt in an African Cup of Nations qualifier against Tunisia on Friday, and the pressure would be on the Liverpool man to get the three points for the Pharaohs.

The Liverpool attacker shared an image suggesting he was ready to play for the national side.

However, some of his Twitter followers weren’t happy with the picture he selected and believed the 26-year-old was unhappy playing for the Pharaohs.

Salah has been exceptional for club and country in recent years with Egypt making it to the World Cup in the summer.

The Reds reached the Champions League final but Salah had to be subbed after 30 minutes due to an injury.

The 26-year-old has 11 goals for club and country this season and will be important for both sides throughout the campaign.

However, the fans weren’t letting go of the picture easily, and here are some of their reactions from Twitter.
