Werner – “€100m target for Jurgen Klopp”

 

Timo Werner has been linked with a move from RB Leipzig to Liverpool in the summer which could see the Reds smash their transfer record again.
German national news outlet Bild am Sonntag published an exclusive on Sunday afternoon that Klopp is keen on bringing the 22-year-old forward to Anfield at the end of the season.
With the future of Leipzig head coach Ralph Hasenhüttl now up for debate, Bild report that Werner is looking for a transfer.
It is further reported that Jurgen Klopp is said to be interested in bringing the striker to Anfield in a deal that could reach £87 million (€100 million).
Werner has been prolific of late and is now favourite to lead the German national side attack in Russia at this summer’s World Cup. With 18 goals and six assists across 37 games for Leipzig so far this season, he is a centre-forward who would be in demand should they sanction a move.
Any move could be complicated by the fact Werner is under contract until 2020, with Leipzig seeking to extend that to 2023 before the start of the World Cup. Should Werner be allowed to move to Liverpool he would join current Leipzig teammate Naby Keita, who joins the Reds in July for a fee that could reach €75 million should the Saxony side qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League.
