Liverpool Recieve Major Advantage Over Bayern In Race For German Forward: Big Boost For Klopp?

According to a recent report by the Daily Express, Liverpool have a significant advantage over Bayern Munich in pursuit of Red Bull Leipzig centre-forward Timo Werner during the summer transfer window. Bayern tends to play with only one striker in their team, a position which is currently being occupied by Robert Lewandowski.

Hence, the same source has revealed that if the Polish striker ends up staying at the Allianz Arena beyond this summer, then there is a chance that they might drop out of the race to sign Werner in this offseason.

The Express has claimed that Lewandowski won’t accept a substitute’s role at Bayern so the German giants would have to step aside which would pave the way for Liverpool to land Werner ahead of the new season.

Does Liverpool Need Werner?

The Merseyside outfit has sometimes felt the need for a new centre-forward up top, so the German striker fits the bill perfectly. Roberto Firmino has been quite productive while operating in the number 10 role, but the Brazilian striker is more accustomed to playing as a facilitator rather than score goals himself inside the opposition penalty box. Thus, bringing in a prolific goal-getter like Werner could help the Reds get over the line in the Premier League title race next season. 

What Will The German Forward Add To Klopp’s Team?

The German frontman has enjoyed another brilliant campaign at Leipzig after putting in a string of goal-scoring displays for them in the Bundesliga during this season. The 23-year-old has registered 19 goals while providing 11 assists in 36 matches for Ralf Rangnick’s team this term across multiple competitions.

There is no doubt that Werner will increase competition for the likes of Firmino and Divock Origi as the German striker offers blistering pace and incredible athleticism in the final third. He is also a prolific goal-scorer, which means that he will add even more goals to Klopp’s frontline.

Liverpool’s Clear Path To Sign Werner: Huge Boost For Klopp?

Hence, their recent advantage in acquiring Werner could be a massive boost for Jurgen Klopp as he looks to build a strong squad capable of challenging on all fronts in the upcoming campaign. He will not only improve the quality of the Liverpool senior team but will also enhance their chances of winning some major trophies in the coming years.
