Liverpool Should Go For This Bundesliga Superstar Who Can Become A Free Agent Next Summer

It’s probably needless to say that Liverpool will be keen to sign a new attacker this summer, who can provide additional competition to the revered front trio of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. They have, so far, reportedly distanced themselves from making any marquee signings.

But, if there is one player Jurgen Klopp should definitely go after this summer, it’s RB Leipzig superstar Timo Werner. The German international has been a subject of long-term interest from the Reds, and his current contract at Red Bull Arena expires at the end of next season. Hence, there is a possibly Liverpool could sign him for a cut-fee this summer.

Werner is one of the best players in the Bundesliga

Since joining RB Leipzig from his boyhood club VfB Stuttgart back in 2016, Werner has become a real asset for Die Roten-Bullen. He has been a consistent goal-scorer and notched up 114 appearances for the club across all competitions.

In those 114 matches, Werner has been involved in a whopping 88 goals – considerably more than any other Leipzig player in the club’s short history. This past season, Werner plundered 16 goals and provided nine assists in 30 matches, helping Leipzig secure a third-place finish in the league.

But, the German international is reportedly keen on leaving Leipzig, making it unlikely that he will sign a contract extension anytime soon. The factory giants reportedly value him at €60 million, but they could be forced to negotiate, knowing that they could lose him for absolutely nothing should they fail to get him to agree to a new deal.

What can Werner bring to the table?

Werner is mostly known for his pace that makes him a scourge on the counter. He is also an aggressive striker and is always willing to win back possession for his team. 

However, what makes him Werner such a feared attacker in Europe is the fact that he is difficult to be shrugged off the ball and is also blessed with technical qualities. Also, the 23-year-old is a versatile attacker, who can also be utilised in the wide attacking positions.

Why should Liverpool make a move for Werner?

Werner is a pressing machine and is also quite a feisty attacker – making him a tailor-made fit for Klopp’s changed gegenpressing style of play at Anfield. Furthermore, he is a productive striker, as his remarkable scoring tally suggests. And at the age of 23, he can turn out to be a smart long-term investment for Liverpool.

However, the Reds are destined to face stiff competition from Bayern Munich, who are willing to wait until 2020 before making a move for German international.
